“Four walls protecting from all that is wild outside, the sloping roof shedding the rain and snow, the chimney with smoke indicating the warmth within—these simple elements are all we need to establish the concept of ‘house’ in anyone’s mind. From America to Japan or from Finland to Africa, the essence of dwelling is the same. . . . ” The Book of the Hut is about primal dwelling and the essence of shelter as seen through the lenses of early shelter traditions, mythology, poetry, fairy tales, children’s drawings, and play huts. But, above all, it is about how we can incorporate an understanding of the hut into modern shelters, creating houses that enable us to live lightly on the earth, in harmony with our natural environment, and more fully as members of the human family. Paperback 5.5" by 8.5" black and white with illustrations
