". . . an invaluable contribution to the growing body of knowledge about these most venerable building materials. I suggest you buy two copies - one for yourself, and one for your building inspector."

David Easton, Author,
The Rammed Earth House



"With clarity and philosophical grace, Bruce King has provided a very functional design tool for owner/builders, architects, and engineers to approach the structural design of these buildings. It should prove to be an invaluable companion to the other works on the subject of earth and straw building, such as The Rammed Earth House, The Straw Bale House, and Build It With Bales."
