I had seen this book a few times while looking for books on green wood work and hand craft and was fortunate enough to get a copy of this now out of print gem. Great writing, good stories, awesome photography, descriptions, and schematics of architecture, tool making, and overall rural living skills and culture in one book. If you are into traditional preservation, or as I like to call it, futurism, and the hope that this almost extinct wisdom holds for the uncomfortable reality of a low-energy future. Worth every cent and more.
This is not a full how to book on every subject covered, but I love it anyway, and love the cooperage related how to that is included.
