A charming book -- an ideal gift book for that friend who reads everything, and who is interested in old houses and old landmarks. Remember, Sing, Old House? This is by the same author, is even more attractive and unusual in appearance, and the content has much wider interest than than the title would suggest. ""Mills"" include all sorts and kinds:- windmills, grist mills, sawmills, snuff mills, weaving mills an and so on and so on. Through the story of the old mills, whole fresh vistas in early American life open up, and many sections of old settlements come in for their share. Breezily written and good Americana.
