can’t praise this book enough. I’ve found nothing else like it out there anywhere. It covers traditional shelters of tribes throughout North America. There are shelters for every type of climate and terrain, so much is transferable to other continents. There are photographs and descriptions of many types of shelters, village lay-outs, information on the tribes and their lifestyles and much more. There is enough detailed information that you can learn to build these shelters with minimal knowledge of building techniques. I’ve used this book to design and build multiple types of shelters. A bit spendy, but you won’t find a better resource on shelter design and building.
