Barns, Sheds and Outbuildings: A Practical Guide, by Byron D. HalstedBarns, Sheds and Outbuildings: A Practical Guide, by Byron D. Halsted, 2007. 240 pages, 5.5x8.5", softbound book. Accompanied by more than 250 illustrations, Halsted's environmentally sensitive manual was written with the farmer in mind--and during a time when a laborer earned a mere dollar a day. His barn-building theories extend to dog- and bird-houses, and are based upon qualities we still hold dear: light and air, space, cost, and beauty, as well as permanence, convenience, and workability. This facsimile edition of the 1881 book of plans and instructions will engage the reader with its anecdotal style. Nearly 100 structures span the gamut of farm buildings: from monumental barns--four stories high and covering nearly an acre, to lowly hen coops and root cellars. The particulars of their construction, recounted in simple and practical terms, tell a timeless tale of life lived amid the changing seasons and the natural world. ADD2183-$12.00

Shelters, Shacks, and Shanties: The Classic Guide to Building Wilderness Shelters, by D. C. Beard, 2004. 256 pages, 5.5x8.5", softbound book. This excellent hands-on guide by one of the founders of the Boy Scouts of America contains a wealth of practical instruction and advice on how to build everything from a bark teepee and a tree-top house to a log cabin and a sod house. No professional architects are needed here; and knowing how to use an axe is more important than possessing carpentry skills. More than 300 of the author's own illustrations and a clear, easy-to-follow text enable campers to create such lodgings as half-cave shelters, beaver mat huts, birch bark shacks, over-water camps, a Navajo hogan, and a pole house. Additional chapters provide information on how to use an axe, split and notch logs, make a fireplace, and even build appropriate gateways to log houses, game preserves, ranches, and other open areas. An invaluable book for scouts, campers, hikers, and hunters of all ages, this guide and its fascinating collection of outdoor lore "still has intrinsic value," said Whole Earth Magazine, and will be of keen interest to any modern homesteader. ADD2182-$10.00
