Synopsis

Synopsis

The crunch of leaves under your feet, the sounds of nature around you, the smell of . . . well, never mind. In this engaging volume, Dottie Booth answers the call with a one-of-a-kind photographic tour of outhouses and privies around the world. Full of personal stories, historical facts, folklore (what did people use before toilet paper? why the crescent moon?), and over 75 full-color photographs, this book will bring back memories for anyone who has ever used an outhouse, and provide a privy primer for those who haven't. An entertaining and personal portrait of a disappearing part of the landscape, NATURE CALLS is a unique addition to any architectural, photographic, or historical collection.
