Even just within the state of New Mexico there are far more, and better, examples of adobe houses, which are truly small, aren't "architect designed" or stuffed full of modern art and antique furniture. A less rarefied take, with more attention to the design elements that arise honestly from the material, would be welcome.
Not enough space is spent discussing any one element of adobe houses, so it should be considered something of a small, short coffee table book.
I liked the book I don't really even understand why the word "small" is in the title since it doesn't even discuss the concept of small houses in any seriousness.
Its most redeeming feature is that it has attractive photographs.

Nice little book, fair price, but the same photos as in similar books I've purchased...Published on September 23, 2008 by NikkiO
In comparison to other books available about adobe houses, the content of this book offers little range and depth. Other choices were less superficial.Published on April 18, 2006 by researcher
