From the Publisher
The fascinating parallel narratives of three men who influenced the era between 1920 and 1950--Wright, Henry Ford and Franklin D. Roosevelt--are interwoven with provocative details about other lives, historic events and personal insights to demonstrate how Wright's ideas have shaped modern America. Describes how the architect's vision failed and succeeded and how Usonia was realized in expected and unexpected ways.

The author knows his subject. After all, he lived it.
A great book of information, but not the first book on Usonian architecture that you should purchase.
Mrs. Rosenbaum no longer lives there and the City of Florence owns the house. Read this book and visit the home. Both will give you an experience that you will not get anywhere else. The author was born there and raised there. He shares experiences that happened in the house and the diversity that existed in this small part of the south.
