Read an Excerpt

It’s evening now and the leaves on the hardwood trees outside my windows are a vibrant red. Actually, their color is more of a rich rust hue than a traditional red. In truth, words and labels mean very little when it comes to describing colors. Words often fail to represent many things. Autumn is more of a state of mind than an actual time. It is a portent of things to come, a poke in the ribs. It is a wake-up call of the inevitable. It’s also stunning and romantic.

The book showcases some great examples of rustic fireplaces, and it is a cool accessory to any cabin home. However, the examples are too similar at times, raising issue of differentiation. In addition, there are instances, where taxidermy looks as much the focus as the fireplace.
