Dan Mack writes about Log Cabins

Log Cabin Living  (1999)    out-of-print

a long essay-poem on the log cabin-- on everything except how to make them! It's about camping, bugs, ghosts, trees, food collecting and all the other little streams of imagination that feed the Log Cabin mind in each of us.
