Permaculture teacher, Patrick Whitefield lived in a self built tipi in Somerset for eight years.
This is his guide to all aspects of tipi living: the story of how he came to live this way; how to choose and pitch a tipi; living with Sun and Storm; maintenance; moving; firemaking; furnishing; food and cooking in a tipi. Full of first hand experience and practical information, it is also Patrick’s personal account of a time of simplicity and spiritual connection with the Earth. A delightful book for everyone interested in tipis, low impact dwelling and those who want to celebrate the simple life.
“An insight to the joys of living as part of nature, in balance with and not in dominance over Gaia.”
