A light-hearted look at outhouse necessity and nostalgia with picturesque photos of privies from across the country, this book answers real-life questions about these once common buildings and the role they played.

Topics covered include: what you did when the outhouse was off-limits, why so many people buried treasure around outhouses, and how the crescent moon became its universal symbol.

With photography from California, Nevada, Oregon, Montana, Wyoming, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Maine, Outhouses uses first-hand accounts and little-known facts to take a nostalgic look back at life before indoor plumbing.
