"Leaning into the Wind is a series of ten intimate essays in which Susan Allen Toth, who was spent most of her life in Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, reveals the ways in which weather has challenged and changed her perceptions about herself and the world around her. She describes her ever-growing awareness of and appreciation for how the weather marks the major milestones of her life. Toth explores issues as large as weather and spirituality in "Who Speaks in the Pillar of Cloud?" and topics as small as mosquito in "Things That Go Buzz in the Night."

Two essays, one from late middle age, ponder how the weather seems different at various stages of life but always provides unexpected opportunities for self-discovery, change, and renewal."--Jacket

In the first section, the authors address basic questions about working with an architect: how to select one, how to establish effective communication, and how to participate in planning your dream house. From the overall appearance of the house to the small but crucial decisions that make a house livable, they dispel myths and offer guidance.

From choosing a site to selecting the finishing touches, they explain the stages necessary to build a custom-designed home, recounting the problems they encountered and the solutions they discovered.--From publisher description
