    Wind & watermills by Region

    Scope & contentA guide to windmills. No two windmills are exactly alike, and this book highlights their differences and the reasons for them, from the spare, ascetic windmills of the North and South American plains to the old European towers of Holland. This book also outlines the long history of mills and describes their workings, including diagrams of interiors. This book also includes representations of windmills in art and literature, from Don Quixote's "tilting at windmills" to Monet's impressionist paintings. Over the years artists and writers have captured the diverse nature of windmills. All the attributes of these marvellous machines are presented in brilliant photographs.
