Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

The author recounts her building of a straw bale house on the outskirts of Tucson, Arizona. In building her house she had to confront fears and a lack of construction skills. Her personal growth through the construction process is as much a focus of this work as the house itself.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Part memoir, part construction journal, this is the inspiring story of Carolyn Roberts and how she huffed and puffed and built herself a house of straw bales in the desert--a dream home for her and her sons.
