    1. A great compilation of adobe, rammed earth, straw bale and reinvented, recycled and high-tech material home construction. I liked the introduction to each building material - both their history and now modern applications along with the beautiful photographs of newly inspired homes and landscapes using these various sustainable and alternative materials. It's inspiring -- I now more than ever would love to have the opportunity to build a structure like one of these; maybe one day!
