Summary

For some people, homes are simply a means to an end -- places to eat, sleep, and store possessions. For others, the home is a symbol of self-expression, a reflection of one's taste and values. The acts of constructing and maintaining a home -- from dusting, sweeping, and furnishing, to designing, building, or remodeling, as well as covering the mortgage payment -- give us a sense of existential purpose, connection with the physical world, and a feeling of belonging in the human community. Illustrated with more than 100 color photographs, A Home of Her Own showcases a wide variety of homes and the painstaking measures that have gone into making them what they are.
