TIPI: A Modern How-To Guide

By Javier & Dyanne Fry Cortez

For centuries, the tipi was the chosen home of many American Indian tribes. Times have changed, but the tipi is still with us. People across North America and around the world are discovering the charms and comforts of this beautiful, portable shelter. This practical guide, written by two experienced tipi campers, will tell you:

  • Where to get a tipi
  • How to haul it
  • How to set it up
  • How to furnish it
  • How to keep it warm in winter, cool in summer, and dry in a stormy spring
