Ever had an irresistible urge to stand a dozen seven-ton stones upright in a circle? If so, this fascinating how-to book could make your dream come true. Robert Roy is a man obsessed with megaliths--structures and monuments constructed of large, often unhewn stones. From the gorgeous cover photo of a stone circle in New South Wales, Australia, to the extensive closing glossary of terms, he's packed Stone Circles
with all you'll ever need to gain the inspiration to create a megalithic structure. You'll also find the instructions and know-how to carry your plans to fruition. In journal format, he takes you through dozens of construction experiences step by step, well-documented with photos and diagrams. Even if you have no intention of circling up, his tour of famous stones circles and their histories is well worth the read. --P. Randall Cohan
