An Artistic Tribute to an American Icon

Nowadays, so many school buildings resemble factories; at one time, the schoolhouse was a more personal place.

Rocheleau is an accomplished photographer, and for that I give this book 3 stars. But the text was disappointing-- amateurish at best. The layout was also a little perplexing. Often the text would reference schools that were elsewhere in the book, but there was no way to look up where to find photos of a particular school.
