"Well done. Everything you'd ever want or need to know about the art of stone masonry. From novice to veteran can get any information they need. Thanks for all your hard work."
       - John C., Colfax, CA

"Interesting book with lots of tips and hints in this profession! "
       - Ove R., Norway

"We are digging rocks, our property is full of them. Knowing we want a rock house, but who’s got a clue? We’re from Hawaii! Now after a Christmas present of ‘Building with Stone' we have a beacon of knowledge fresh from Mr. McRaven. Full of enthusiasm and direction. We are now encouraged, eager, and medically insured for our trouble. But happy with our future."
       - Melinda Lockett, Hornbrook, CA

"A very good book. Lots of information. The only downside is you only tell one persons technique and theories. There’s a lot more to be said on tools and older ways of working with tools. I’m a stoneworker by trade and loved it."
       - Wimer D., Big Prairie, OH

"Just the book I need for building my castle and keep. A quality book on an arcane and out of the way subject. I also like the texture of the cover, most uncommon."
       - Gregory S., Mukilteo, WA
