Prologue: best bid -- Raw material -- Clapboard siding -- Someone else's trash -- Windows and doors and airplanes -- A fence between me and the world -- Load bearing walls -- The furnace -- A knock on the door -- A chimney to the sky -- Progress gallops -- The years roll by -- Someone else's home.
"A young writer's sincere search (with his dog) for an authentic life--buying a ruined house in Detroit for $500, fixing it up nail by nail, and, in the process, participating in the grassroots rebirth of the city itself."--Provided by publisher.
