Subtitled 'How to build a Retreat in the Wilderness and Learn to Live with Nature', this new book by author and carpenter Will Jones takes a look at how temporary dwellings, like the humble cabin (bothy, yurt, treehouse, etc.) are written into our DNA and how we might benefit from moving back to a simpler way of being.
Part practical toolkit (chapters cover finding your location, sorting the groundworks, using the right tools, weatherproofing, etc.), and part guide (to nature, to the history of temporary dwellings and their occupiers), this handsome new book is a rare thing - it calls you to action; rather than just making you dream it makes wilderness living feel like a reality. And, if you're like me, and struggle putting up a shelf, it provides inspiration that may make you go and stare at your toolbox again and wonder... what if?
