New Treehouses of the World Hardback
by Pete Nelson
In the five years since the release of the international publishing success "Treehouses of the World", the community of treehouse builders has grown considerably and many more - and more intriguingly innovative - treehouses have been built around the world, from North America to Asia and many points in-between.
As worldchanging and sustainable living issues become the most important challenges facing the post-millennial age, the positive power, ecological consciousness and good will that a simple treehouse represents couldn't come at a better time.
Picking up where "Treehouses of the World" leaves off, "New Treehouses of the World" continues the journal-style travelogue of the world's leading treehouse designer and builder, Pete Nelson.From his fateful year-long sabbatical in Spain, where he decided to make treehouses his sole enterprise, to the founding of Treehouse Point near Seattle, Nelson documents the beginnings of this new journey alongside a bountifully illustrated record of his travels, discoveries and epiphanies. Opening with an introduction to the world of treehouses, the book quickly shifts to a discussion of state-of-the-art tree-connection technology and a detailed description of the building of a treehouse.
Given new eyes with which to see this emerging phenomenon, the reader is then taken even further afield on a global tour of more than thirty-five innovative, contemporary treehouses and is treated to exclusive photographs and stories that document the world's most extraordinary arboreal architecture.

Okay, I want a big back yard with a tree big enough for a treehouse like the ones in this book! They seem like a mini-retreat with a great view.
