DANGEROUS
DIFFERENCES
Here is a chronicle of one man's life-
changing experiences as he
immerses himself in a decades-long
labor of love constructing a unique
cabin from natural materials in
Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains.
The book introduces us to a
fascinating array of characters,
including greenwood craftsmen,
colorful mountain folk—one of
whom is actually a water witch—as
well as to skillful (and not  so skillful)
fishermen and poker players.

This book informs us that “
If you
build it . . . it will be immensely
satisfying, whether they come or
not
.”
But they came, in great numbers.
Who could not? After all it is a cabin
of logs on a friendly mountain in the
heart of the beautiful Shenandoah
Valley.
