This 41-page softbound book, with black & white photographs and illustrations, was published by the Harrisonburg-Rockingham Historical Society in conjunction with the 1996 exhibit at The Shenandoah Valley Folk Art & Heritage Center in Dayton, VA.

“The Shenandoah Valley has long been recognized as a source for handcrafted, traditional objects that reflect the ethnicity and heritage of their makers.”

As guest curator for the exhibit, Suter authored this accompanying essay, which is presented in four sections, Tradition and Change, The Cabinetmakers, The Competition, and Conclusions.

Cabinetmakers featured are: Daniel Suter (1808-1873), Christian Theis (1834-1897) and his brother Henry Theis (1842-1929), Alexander Stuart Coffman (1842-1910), and Adam Wise Kersh (1828-1905).
