THE COMPLETE YURT HANDBOOK
Price (excluding P&P)
(from Eco-logic Books website)
For many centuries, throughout central Asia, the yurt has been home to millions of people. Robust and versatile, the yurt has evolved into the ultimate portable dwelling. These virtues have been recognised in the west and now we find yurts used for many purposes ? offices, summer houses, meditation spaces, spare rooms, or just satisfying spaces to be in.
The book is divided into two parts: Part One deals with the history of the yurt, how it works and the principles behind construction. We also take a look at life today in a Mongolian ger and the culture and etiquette of ger living.
Part Two gives full and detailed instructions on how to make several types of yurt, including step by step instructions on how to build your own ?weekend yurt?.
The author Paul King has been a professional yurt builder for more than 10 years and has travelled extensively in Mongolia to research his subject.
