The rising costs of operating gas, oil and electric heatings systems have encouraged many people to switch to wood for heating purposes. But conventional wood stoves have many problems - you are either too hot or too cold, you have to constantly be adding wood, they are dirty and cause air pollution, and there is the ever-present danger of burning the house down. The Sunstone Superstove takes its name from the fact that the stone battery is heated indirectly from the sun. Wood is actually stored solar heat - the tree takes its energy from the sun, stores it in wood and, as the wood is burned, it passes the stored energy to the stones, where it sits like an investment - a wealth of heat ready to be drawn off on an as-needed basis. John Lago has included easy step-by-step instructions with numerous illustrations to help you build your own Sunstone Superstove from scratch, using inexpensive, readily available materials.
