Author/filmmaker Wanek (The Art of Natural Building, The Straw Bale Solution) presents sustainable strategies that utilize natural energy sources and building materials. Color photographs showcase a dozen new and eco-renovation houses from each region of the US and Europe, with specifics given on the site, challenges, costs, and strategies. The guide lists recommended resources. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
