The book presents 27 Wright homes, and Unity Temple, documenting one of the architect's most influential periods of his career. The last chapter surveys eight “lost, altered, and possibly Wright” homes. The photographs are accompanied by descriptive captions, while introductory text to each chapter details the story behind each commission, addressing Wright's relationships with his clients, the importance of each building in Wright’s oeuvre, and the characteristics that make each house unique. The endpapers of this book feature a map locating all the sites discussed.
