Hey Shannon, I hope you are well. I'm in Japan conducting an archaeology survey; beautiful area and I just caught the tail-end of the cherry blossoms.
Can you please post the book announcement below to the coblist. Thanks a lot.
peace, Tim

Natural Building: Creating Communities Through Cooperation 
 SGNB is excited to announce the publication by Schiffer Books of Natural Building: Creating Communities Through Cooperation, edited by Tim Rieth and Bob Ferris. The book documents the experience of building a natural structure and forming a cohesive community during Yestermorrow's inaugural Natural Building Intensive program in 2007.Natural Building: Creating Communities Through Cooperation is due out May 2008, and will be available from Schiffer Books,, Borders, and Barnes and Nobles.Click on this link to preview the book and place an order with Schiffer (you will need to search the Schiffer site either by author or title): DescriptionThis brilliant book combines the wisdom of a great reference tool with the wonder of an inspiration guidebook. Basics in foundations, framing, wall systems, and roofs are explored through the shared experiences of teachers, students, and seekers who came together one summer to build a folly and created a legacy. The value of natural building is told in four parallel stories. At its core is a primer on low-impact and very accessible building techniques, materials, and approaches. Even more, it is a narrative of shared experience and camaraderie. The book yields insights about the value of teaching in a mentoring, experiential, and enabling manner. It is also a glimpse into how natural building projects -- when done with care and purpose -- can re-stitch the fabric of community lost to so many.
