I have created this site to document the fascinating life histories of Mary Mackie and  B. Allan Mackie.  Everyone knows them from the successful series of books that re-launched the age-old craft of building with logs  but there is so much more to their story!  Turbulent lives, diverse talents and far-reaching journeys that took them from their mountain ranch to solo sailing and to so many places in between.         Their writing and  teaching have touched thousands yet there is so much that hasn't been told.  Stay tuned as the old stories and new ones are brought to the site with photographs that span 70 years of lives filled with larger-than-life joys and sorrows.
