"One hundred years ago America's richest man established a dynastic seat, the granite-clad Kykuit, high above the Hudson River. Though George Vanderbilt's 255-room Biltmore had recently put the American country house on the money map, John D. Rockefeller, who detested ostentation, had something simple in mind - at least until his son, John Jr., and Junior's charming wife, Abby, injected classical taste and a spirit of noblesse oblige into the equation. Built to honor the senior Rockefeller, the house would also become the place above all others that anchored the family's memories and sense of itself. Simultaneously grand and restrained, Kykuit was to stand as the ideal blending of great wealth and democracy - or so the Rockefellers hoped." "The authors take us inside the house and the family to observe how that vision played itself out through a century of building and rebuilding as each new generation left its distinctive mark on the place. At Kykuit, John Sr. could be with his children and grandchildren and indulge his passion for golf, though in later years he seemed to find life there excessively formal and spent more and more time elsewhere. After his father's death, Junior made it his goal to keep the place unchanged, while Abby, with her love of family and openness to new ideas, devoted herself to giving it life and warmth. Their son Nelson used it for political entertaining on a grand scale and brought to it his extraordinary collection of the modern art his mother had taught him to love, but which his father had always abhorred. Nelson also - much against the wishes of the rest of the family - initiated in his will the process of opening the house to the public, which finally came to pass in 1994."--BOOK JACKET.… (lisätietoja)

I read this in preparation for a visit to the Hudson Valley and a tour of their home there, Kykuit. It is an abbreviated family biography as well, at least as it relates to this home. I definitely think it will add to my enjoyment of the house. ( )
