Flushing Out America's Hidden Treasures

Book Description

This new book of photographs by Londie Padelsky offers readers a charming and quirky selection of outhouses from across the western states of America. Each region of the country boasts a different style and no one structure is the same. Some have been lovingly restored and others have aged with time and weather. Like David Stoecklein's series on cowboy gear and ranch style, this new book preserves a time-honored icon of the American West.
