This review is from: Shelters, Shacks, and Shanties: The Classic Guide to Building Wilderness Shelters (Dover Books on Architecture) (Paperback)
This book gives an interesting overview of how to build all sorts of shelters from a simple lean-to to a log cabin. He throws in simple details that I had tended to overlook, such as the different ways of jointing and joining a log cabin's logs. Another example is how to clay in a wooden chimney so that it will not catch fire.
