Sustainable Compromises

2014. By Alan Boye. An excellent new book chronicling the author's trials and tribulations of building an off-the-grid, energy efficient, straw bale house in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. Written with hard-won authority and humor, Boye takes up the "how-to" practicalities of "building green," from finances to nuts and bolts to strains on friends and family. He also recalls his previous attempt at sustainable living when, as a young man, he resided for a year in a utilities-free yurt in the desert of New Mexico. Softcover. 196 pp.
