Forward by Paul Kruty

Frank Lloyd Wright is best known for his urban and suburban houses. Lesser known are the more than 40 summer "cottages" he designed in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Ontario.

Many of the early summer cottages have a rustic feel and are not as easily recognized as Wright's prolific year-round domestic designs. Among them is a stunning estate on Delavan Lake in southern Wisconsin called Penwern.

Commissioned by Chicago capitalist Fred B. Jones around 1900, Penwern has received both national and state recognition. The home's current stewards have dedicated themselves to restoring the estate to Wright's vision, ensuring its future.

Featuring beautiful color photographs, plus vintage black and white pictures and original Wright drawings, this book transports readers back to the glory days of gracious living and entertaining on the lake.
