This book offers a glimpse into a lifestyle that not everyone can live or possibly afford, but it's not pretentious. I applaud all the owners in this book for having the means to keep these gems in such great condition and for letting us peek in.
The book captures the spirit and beauty of this remarkable part of America like no other document that I have ever encountered. Highly recomended.
Hunt Country Style, in case anyone is doing comparisons, is a vastly different offering from say Vickie Moon's book 'Equestrian Style'. That book is not focused on homes but rather the various equine sport disciplines and with it the decor that accompanies followers of each. To that point the use of 'style' in the title is somewhat misleading as it's not a decoration book although visually anyone could pick up several idea from the interior shots. Instead the reader is invited to enjoy homes that are truly lived in, they are honestly decorated homes vs. stages, and more often than not working homes by people who are horse owners. The focus varies from Virginia residences in the Middleburg region to Charlottesville. All of them are private homes which makes this all the more unique.
Kathryn Masson would be well encouraged to explore a follow up offering with such additional homes such as North Wales, St. Brides, Ayrshire Farm, Canterbury, and Melrose Castle.
