Better than I expected, the coloration and samplers pictured are truly remarkable. A lot of good basic Ohio history, with maps by county and description of how the state was divided. It is one of my favorite things, and I never get tired of picking it up and reading more about their simple lives.

I was lucky enough to meet the author and attend a few of her lectures. Ohio lost a treasure when she died.

She was a bright star and she gave Ohio an awesome bicentennial gift. I'm so sorry that the collection she assembled (which was documented in this book) was only a temporary exhibit instead of a permanent collection. This book covers samplers from each of the 88 counties in Ohio.

Her focus was the history of the samplers and their creators. It's not really a book for those that create samplers unless they are interested in authentic elements for a particular geographic area. Please keep this in mind if you are considering adding it to your collection.

I mainly purchased this book to hopefully learn more about the origin of the phrase "Ohio is my dwelling place". I have a sampler with that exact phrase and thought that I could find out something on its history. Nothing in the book explained where that phrase was used. Obviously it would be used because the needle crafters honored Ohio as their home. But was there a certain school or a region that only used it?
This was my only disappointment with the book. It is a fine source book for school girl samplers. Well written with wonderful examples of many samplers. I can recommend it for anyone interested in samplers, especially school girl samplers.
