The Sauna
A Complete Guide to the Construction, Use, and Benefits of the Finish Bath
Revised and Expanded Edition
by Rob Roy

      With a history going back at least one thousand years, the sauna is ready for a new generation of enthusiasts seeking health, pleasure, and peace of mind, and Rob Roy is ready to recruit! "If the sauna is just a bath, then Buckingham Palace is just a house." So writes sauna expert and intrepid do-it-yourselfer Roy in this new, updated version of The Sauna.

      This completely revised and expanded edition of The Sauna contains everything you ever wanted to know about the famous "Finnish bath." In this inviting book, Roy shares his infectious enthusiasm for the sauna and provides a complete, detailed guide to sauna building, along with resources for equipment and supplies.

      The Sauna is replete with history, tradition, health benefits, instructions for proper use and maintenance, as well as step-by-step instructions for building a variety of cordwood masonry saunas.

      Building a cordwood-style sauna is also a great way to practice cordwood masonry techniques. It is a great starter project for anyone wanting to build a cordwood home. New to this edition, Roy has added a section on conventionally wood-framed saunas, which is handy for comparison. But do not be misled into thinking that this book is a "complete guide" to building any kind of sauna. Roy's specialty is cordwood masonry, and this guide will help the reader build a first-class cordwood sauna.

      The beautiful color photographs, also new to this edition, will inspire you to create your own sauna haven. 240 pages. Chelsea Green Publishing Company. 2004. ISBN: 9781931498630.
