Gimme Shelter




A Shelter in the Garden by Pierre Nessman (Stewart, Tabori & Chang; $19.95) is an enchanting exploration of all the ways you can turn a backyard into an outdoor wonderland: playhouses, treehouses, gazebos, arbors and pergolas, even a nomadic tent, Mongol yurt, or horse-drawn caravan. “You don’t need to have woods or a large garden to build a little shelter of your own,” the author writes, evoking childhood memories of cozy nests and forts. “Whether on the roof of an apartment building, nestled in the hollow of a small city garden, or into the center of the building atrium-like, that part of our childhood dreams can flourish beyond the limits of the garden.”
