Other Books: The Adobe Story: A Global Treasure by Paul McHenry, Jr., (Washington, D.C.: American Association for International Aging, 1996)
- Adobe has been used throughout the world for centuries. Perhaps we've taken this "global treasure" for granted, or worse, thought it too old-fashioned for the present century. This book is an excellent introduction to material of adobe itself and the cultures of people who used adobe to create shelter.
