WOW! Not a single person in the CBC forums or Calgary Herald forums mentioned Reginald and Gladys Laubin and their book about tipi history, construction and living. I think it was entitles "The Book Of The Tipi". When I was a youngster in the early seventies this book was on the shelf along with TWEC, Shelter, Shanks and Shanties, Domebook Two and of course, oh,....some other book I've forgotten the title of. Much Love.

I was literally looking where to buy tipis when I came across the story about you. I am currently wanting to do this myself but I have a couple questions for you. What size Tipi did you get? I know it's a 15oz canvas with liner but I"m seeing a lot of options, not sure what I need. I absolutely love your set up. was it a 16'?
