This is a book on soils and how they support hillsides, walls, streets, and houses. Using a unique blend of humor with technical facts, the author provides the layperson with a very down-to-earth guide to what he might need to know when it comes to building, buying, or owning a house. It covers such topics as landslides, expansive soils, quicksand and collapsible soils. For additional help, each chapter ends with a useful "Summary of Important Points."
