More than just a well-written history 7 septembre 2011
Par S. Winkler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
"A Carpenter's Life" is a first-person account of both an evolution of dwellings told with intimate nuances that could only come from someone who lived through the times described and, most importantly, a witnessing of the loss of connection to the basic pulse of life that the speed and rush of modern times, with all its gadgetry and novelty, has so efficiently removed from our experience. And in the telling of the stories, there is healing. Larry's style of writing is basic, simple, and direct--it is not only a pleasure to read but it also connects powerfully with an earthy wisdom that feels welcoming to the soul. The stories contain in them the comforting voice of sanity that is too often missing in the world today, and they are potent. They have the potential to not only change how we see our world, but also how we might live in the world. This book is good medicine and a welcomed input into the stream of our busy lives. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Ode to the common man 10 octobre 2011
Par Kathleen J. Burke - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Read a bit of this book every day and think back about who we are and how we got here.
Read it to your kids. Please read it to them. These are recollections of a truly unique man, a man as common as dirt, a plainsman. As Dylan wrote about Woody Guthrie, "there's not many men done the things that you done". I guess I'm a sucker for these American folk heroes. We are of another time, and maybe another culture, and yet, this is our saga. This is who we are. Larry Haun is who the bleep we are.

Refreshing and meaningful read 20 septembre 2011
Par Cherrie Clarke - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is the first time I've ever written a review and am doing so because of how good this book is. You don't need to be a carpenter to enjoy this read. The stories are well written and fit into everyone's lives through descriptions of life inside and around the dwellings that we make into our homes. The writer has a superb way of using words and in a such a down to earth manner that I felt as if I was visiting an old friend or special family member. The author has a compelling way of sharing life experiences that you easily relate to your own. This is the best book that I've read in a long time as his descriptive stories left me feeling good and with much to contemplate. Reading this was an uplifting breath of fresh air. The author must be sensitive as well as intelligent to be able to put down words that touch your soul when you read them. Thank you for a great book! Cherrie Clarke, Fremont, Nebraska

Larry Haun: My Grandather, and Greatest Teacher 11 septembre 2012
Par Jonathan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
While I was growing up I had the honor of being able to say that Larry Haun was my grandfather. This man taught me everything I know about being a man and I can't thank him enough for everything he's done for me. This book was the last thing he gave me before he died. I remember as he was beginning to write it he told me that it was going to be unlike any of the books he's written before. Over time I soon understood what he meant. This book is his life story told through his life work. It's been almost a year since he passed and as I read this book it's as if a little bit of Larry still speaks to me through it. When I saw it here on and read all the positive reviews for it, I couldn't help but smile. In short, all I can say is that I love this book, and I love the man that wrote it.

Our Life, A Carpenter's Life 29 novembre 2011
Par Instructor Too - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Larry Haun is an old time carpenter and contractor that has written dozens of articles in various trade magazines through the years and has produced many excellent carpentry videos and books.

A big departure from a standard technical or trade instructional manual, Larry lately wrote a book entitled, "A Carpenter's Life". This is not a book about the methods of construction or building, rather it's a book about the lifestyles and habits of the people who live in different types of houses. The book describes the organic process of living in a unique geographical area and how people adapted to using the materials that the land had to offer for their shelter. Larry then goes further and describes much more including the trials and difficulties associated with the different lifestyles; and he discusses the earlier more primitive technology that our ancestors worked with in order to "make a living".

Part sociologist, part ethnologist, and part master-builder, Larry Haun rolls these many perspectives seamlessly into a story to tell. By his writing and insights the reader discovers that Larry is a decent, hard working man who sees the world through the ethics of the building trade, that of honest hard work and square dealings. There's no need for myth or tall tales in Larry's writing, there are no Paul Bunyon's or Blue Oxes in the story, just plain-living working folks earning their bread and living in different housing styles depending upon chance, and their time and place in history. Larry weaves these stories into an interesting tapestry that's both educational and entertaining with lots of dry humor and local colloquialisms thrown in.

Larry's book views the world through the practical design of home and hearth, and this works as a literary perspective for Larry's writing because he loves and understands the world of design and structure, and this is the medium he uses to tell his stories. Larry gives a voice and color to all the many houses we see all around us, structures created by the hands and ingenuity of men through sweat and blood, with no little effort. Larry Haun brings these buildings, and the people who live in them, to life.

What I like about Larry is he's able to project himself into the lives of those he's writing about and he's able to discuss the lifestyles and habits of earlier generations without prejudice or criticism. What I also like about old Larry is he's a poet, and his writing takes on a sing-song warmth while he writes about homes and those who abide within them... In a nod to Will Rogers, Larry Haun could probably have written that, "he never met a house he didn't like."

While writing this review of Larry's book, we learned about Larry Haun's untimely demise. We are saddened to think that so insightful and dynamic a voice is now silenced, he was an interesting man. Fortunately, Larry Haun leaves his book behind for us to enjoy. Thanks to men like Larry Haun, none of us have to sleep in the rain... Thank you, Larry, and thanks for your book. Hopefully you too will enjoy it.
