4.0 out of 5 starsAlternative housing ideas25 Feb 2002

5.0 out of 5 starsEARTH SHELTHER22 Jun 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Of the few books on earth shelter in circulation, Bill, Athena, and Paulina have provided us with a Gaudian Prairie style home for today. The experience of reading this book is like getting to the roots of our earthly existance in regards to needs and desires. All we need is shelter, made from the earth, with the help of the community.
