This illustrated look at nineteenth-century New England architecture was named a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year. This book, from the award-winning author of The Way Things Work , takes readers of all ages on a journey through a fictional mill town called Wicksbridge. With words and pictures, David Macaulay reveals fascinating details about the planning, construction, and operation of the mills--and gives us a powerful sense of the day-to-day lives of Americans in this era. "His imaginary mills in an imaginary town in Rhode Island, and the generations of people who built and ran them, come to life." -- The New York Times
