About the Author

Alan Boye is a professor of English at Lyndon State College in Vermont. His most recent book is Tales from the Journey of the Dead: Ten Thousand Years on an American Desert (Nebraska, 2006).


"Not only is this book beautifully written, with wisdom and humor, it also offers a practical guide for 'sustainable' home builders of any age. Boye writes with an impressive intelligence, immediately drawing readers in not only to the story but to the mind and heart of the author." - Reeve Lindbergh, author of Under a Wing: A Memoir "Alan Boye's humor and generosity run through this book, as does his gentle compassion for the people and places he loves." - Miriam Karmel, author of Being Esther
