This lavishly illustrated volume celebrates one of the world's best-loved forms of rustic architecture - the cabin. The ultimate in escapism, the log cabin - whether functional or sophisticated - has the power to make us feel at home yet close to nature. The "Orvis Book of Cabins" is a compelling illustrated tour of more than twenty cabins, both large and small, rustic and sophisticated. Some have been in a family for generations, while others are newly built or have been completely renovated. All the cabins provide inspiration for living an active outdoor life and getting the most enjoyment possible from the cabin and its environs.
