We follow the author from the sod house in Nebraskawhere his mother was born through the frame house where he spenthis childhood to the production houses that he built one a day inthe San Fernando Valley to the Habitat for Humanity houses that hehas been devoting his time to most recently. While the housesprovide the narrative glue, they are but part of the story. Whatemerges through the pages of A Carpenter?s Life is a passionatepaean to the earth and those who walk upon it, written by a veteranbuilder with a deep connection to the natural world, a yearning forsimplicity, a respect for humanity and an evocative notion of whatwe mean by ?home.?
