Author Biography - Becky Kemery
Becky Kemery was introduced to yurts at a retreat center in the early '90's. Since then she has lived in four different yurts in three states, through both harsh winters and scorching summers. Becky's unique experience as a yurt dweller means that her advice and expertise is unmatched, from the mistakes and potential pitfalls to the sheer joy of living in a beautiful round space. Kemery currently lives on a permaculture-based homestead in the mountains of North Idaho, in a rustic setting surrounded by herb and vegetable gardens where moose and wild turkeys pay regular visits.
