    DescriptionIn 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.
