Pollan's book on the building of his writing cottage is a meditation on working with your hands, with a bit of history thrown in. In his usual style, he draws on a variety of cultural threads to discuss what it means to build and have your own place, how the building works emotionally and structurally, and what forces shaped our understandings of buildings in American today.
