Summary "Samuel Mockbee launched the Rural Studio in 1992 to create homes and community buildings for poor people while offering hands-on education stressing community service. Since his death in 2001, the Rural Studio has continued to thrive. With text by Andrew Oppenheimer Dean and photographs by Timothy Hursley, this new book explains the changes the studio has undergone during the last four years and promotes its continuing ability to "proceed and be bold" as Mockbee counseled."--BOOK JACKET
