"My husband can get his own copy, I won't let him have mine. I especially loved the diagrams and drawings." -- Marlis Simms, Publisher of The Rendevous Report
"We've been making tipis for many years and we learned a lot from Make Your Own Tipi." -- C&S Tents
I am a professional circus model maker and as such have been making miniature tents for over 30 years. I borrowed Make Your Own Tipi from Pete True. This book is really easy to follow and is just the kind of craft instruction book a beginner needs to make a tipi. Even as a professional I found it to be extremely helpful and am now going to make a tipi using Make Your Own Tipi. -- Allen Bratton, Newberg, Oregon
I have been tipi camping for around 20 years. I own probably just about all the books on tipis. This is absolutely the best book on making tipis I have seen. Its really easy to follow. I recommend that anyone wanting to make a tipi or even those who like to collect books should have one for their collection. I read it cover to cover several times -- Pete True, Newberg, Oregon
