Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Although known primarily for his iconic midwestern buildings, Frank Lloyd Wright constructed many of his most ambitious and distinctive works in the western states. The landscape of the West charmed and astounded Wright to such a degree that it fundamentally shifted his concept of organic architecture. Frank Lloyd Wright: The Western Work features 23 of Wright's projects in Washington, Oregon, Utah, Idaho, New Mexico, Arizona, Montana, and Wyoming, presented in lustrous color photographs and archival images. Wright scholar Dixie Legler discusses the history and architecture of each of these sites, which, outside of Taliesin West, are relatively unknown. Frank Lloyd Wright: The Western Work is an essential book for architects and others entranced by Wright's timeless style.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 142).
