Our Friends in Brazil

We have been talking recently to our friends at the Solisluna publishing company in Brazil about translating our book Shelter into Portuguese. We sent them a copy of our new book, The Half-Acre Homestead, along with three of our mini-books and our wooden model of a tiny home. They just sent us this email and photo.

Hi Lloyd,

I hope you’re doing well.

I received your material yesterday and I would like to thank you a lot for sending me this marvelous book!

Here in Solisluna, we’re all enchanted by it. Wonderful work, so meaningful.

A great legacy for the world. Congratulations to you and Lesley.

Best wishes from Bahia,
Kin and Solisluna team

P.S.: Shelter has been translated into Spanish, French, German, Japanese, and Korean.
