Red House

Being a Mostly Accurate Account of New England's Oldest Continuously Lived-in Ho use

Author: Sarah Messer

Publisher: Penguin

ISBN: 1440626472

Category: History

Page: 400

View: 7163

In her critically acclaimed, ingenious memoir, Sarah Messer explores America’s fascination with history, family, and Great Houses. Her Massachusetts childhood home had sheltered the Hatch family for 325 years when her parents bought it in 1965. The will of the house’s original owner, Walter Hatch—which stipulated Red House was to be passed down, "never to be sold or mortgaged from my children and grandchildren forever"—still hung in the living room. In Red House, Messer explores the strange and enriching consequences of growing up with another family’s birthright. Answering the riddle of when shelter becomes first a home and then an identity, Messer has created a classic exploration of heritage, community, and the role architecture plays in our national identity.

A long time ago, I was clued out about everything. I had to create a map for myself firstly for the academic world that I was part of for awhile then when I decided it was too boring for me, I joined the real world, had to learn about practical knowledge so I created the "People Power" books. I know all about practical and academic knowledge now. The average person doesn't. This book will help you get started. You need the library guidebook too because libraries are still cool. If you’re a floundering idiot in money, go to #332 and find some good, current money books or if you’re looking for a job, go to #331. I know that every year all over the world, there are millions of undergrads starting to get indoctrinated into how to write an academic paper. If you have this book, it might save you a lot of time learning about academia. Basic Reference Information Books about how to do research are at #001.42 or Q180.55 at the library and #021 to #031.
