Publisher’s Description: 

The author of the acclaimed bestseller "Second Nature" turns his sharp insight to the craft of building, as he recounts the process of designing and constructing a small one-room structure on his rural Connecticut property.Pollan's ability to connect our everyday experiences and the natural world made his books The Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food best-sellers. This updated edition of one of his earlier books tells the often hilarious story of a small wooden hut - his "shelter for daydreams" - built with his own admittedly unhandy hands. Inspired by both Thoreau and Mr. Blandings, the book conveys the history and meaning of all human building and the connections between our bodies, our minds, and nature. 336 pp.
