Mur, far og dotter – ei bok om tørrmurring

Jeg begynte å stable noen stein i hagen for å lage til noen bed for roser og planter, og fikk tips om denne boka på bluesky. Og det er jeg glad for! Boka forteller lettbeint og lavmælt om hvordan arkitekt-datteren og steinarbeider-faren bygger en mur sammen. Om detaljer i arbeidet, bruk av verktøy, teknikker for stabling og tegninger og enkle og fine forklaringer. Boka trekker også opp et bakteppe av større perspektiver rundt steinbygging og hvilken betydning den har hatt for oss – det «store oss» – både lokalt, regionalt og globalt, gjennom tidene og mange tusen år tilbake.

Anbefales!

Den lille bonden – en historiebok om slit, nøysomhet og bærekraft

En godt skrevet, lettlest bok om små kår og trange tider mange steder i landet, langt tilbake i tid. Et fascinerende innblikk i en tid som føles som at har forsvunnet for lengst, men som det ikke er så lenge siden ble forlatt. Det var veldig mange som levde av mat de dyrket selv, som betalte leie for hus og tomt ved tvangsarbeid hos storgårdene, og som drømte om bedre liv med egen eiendom og større frihet. Dette er boka som forteller historien dems. Anbefales!

I 1979 ga Rolf Jacobsen ut diktet «Den lille bonden». Det har vært en inspirasjon for Roar Vingelsgaard, som har reist Norge rundt for å finne historien om husmenn, fiskerbønder og småbrukere fra slutten av 1800-tallet og fram til i dag. Det har blitt ei historiebok om hun og han som gikk fra arbeid til arbeid. Hun hadde ansvaret for huset og fjøset, og han måtte ta seg arbeid utenfor hjemmet for å ha noen inntekter. Men i onnene måtte alle være med. Den lille bonden var nøysom, og han visste hvordan de kunne bruke ressursene i utmarka. Lyngheier, løv, tang, bær og vilt - alt kunne brukes slik at den lille buskapen og den store familien skulle ha nok. De norske bygdene var som fargerike lappetepper med slåtteenger, beitemark og røde låver - godt rammet inn av steingjerder og dreneringsgrøfter. Vi har mye å lære av historien om den lille bonden. Mer enn noen gang trenger vi å høre på de som vet hvor det gror, og hvordan vi kan ta vare på jorda på en bærekraftig måte.

"It's the night before Hogswatch. And it's too quiet. There's snow, there're robins, there're trees covered with decorations, but there's a notable lack of the big fat man who delivers the toys... He's gone. Susan the governess has got to find him before morning, otherwise the sun won't rise. And unfortunately her only helpers are a raven with an eyeball fixation, the Death of Rats and an oh god of hangovers. Worse still, someone is coming down the chimney.

" What shall we do?' said Twoflower. Panic?' said Rincewind hopefully. He always held that panic was the best means of survival. As it moves towards a seemingly inevitable collision with a malevolent red star, the Discworld could do with a hero. What it doesn't need is a singularly inept and cowardly wizard, still recovering from the trauma of falling off the edge of the world, or a well-meaning tourist and his luggage which has a mind (and legs) of its own. Which is a shame because that's all there is..."
