It is also the sequel to Kahn's best-selling book 'Shelter', which was published in 1973. There are some 1100 photos and over 300 drawings, all illustrating buildings assembled with human hands. There's a Japanese-style stilt house accessible only by going on a cable 500 feet across a river, a stone house in South Africa where baboons jump up and down on the roof at night, multilevel treehouses on the South China Sea, and a house built of bottles in the Nevada desert. There are twin pages of photos from Archlibre (countercultural builders in the French Pyreness), a number of off-the-grid solar-powered houses in the Northern California woods, and a section on natural materials: straw bales, cob, bamboo, and log structures." - book jacket.
