In this brilliantly photographed essay, esteemed architectural historian and author Robert Winter goes to the heart of America's architecture - in its Heartland. Dozens of architects made their mark on this area of the country, including Robert and James Adams, Frank Lloyd Wright, George Grant Elmslie and William Gray Purcell, Francis Costigan, William W. Boyington, George Ingham Burnett, Isaiah Rogers, and others. From Sioux City with its amazing Woodbury County Courthouse by George Grant Elmslie, to Ida Grove, Iowa, where Byron Godberson was so taken with Gothic architecture that he paid for its use on a number of buildings, including a MacDonald's, tour the remarkable architecture of the Midwest with Winter as he reveals the places and buildings that made them famous.
