The process of chopping and stacking wood has long traditions in Norway. A necessary activity in order to keep your home warm. BUT, this book is also so much more: “it’s also a thoughtful attempt to understand man’s age-old predilection for stacking wood and passion for open fires. An intriguing window into the exoticism of Scandinavian culture, the book also features enough inherently interesting facts and anecdotes and inspired prose to make it universally appealing. The U.S. edition is a fully updated version of the Norwegian original, and includes an appendix of U.S.-based resources and contacts.”
You and I have talked about this book and I join you in highly recommending it. As well stated, it is about a lot more than just the subjects in the title.
That’s right Don, and thanks for also recommending it! I’m always happy when I meet people who’ve discovered this gem of a book!
