Review:

"A handsomely illustrated text on the design and construction of adobe and rammed earth buildings . . . A must for anyone contemplating or studying adobe or rammed earth construction." —Choice"The silence of earth walls is uncanny. The inciting, photograph-laden Adobe and Rammed Earth Buildings is more than a primer; the author addresses engineering and design, too." —Whole Earth Catalog"A valuable book, and it works as a force for diversity and practicality that is much needed in American housing." —Folklore Forum
