Barns and Backroads is a beautiful photographic journey along rural backroads in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Barns and farmhouses are photographed by Susan Collett Duchene in a way that reflects the unique character of each farm structure. Attention is given to detail and history. A profound reverence and respect for the rural history, life and architecture is expressed thoughtfully throughout the book. Simple informative commentary, an introduction and a poem writen by Susan about a particularly special farmstead create a completeness to her first publication. Barns and Backroads leave the reader reflecting on their own personal connection to our rural past, both personal and in our larger community.
