At age eight when Hannah Holmes and her sister wished their bedrooms were joined, her father produced a sledge hammer and ax, and opened a window through which to throw the offending wall. Later, as a world-traveling science writer, she discovered that humanity had invented far stranger ways of fending off the elements. Now a realtor, she studies firsthand the structures we erect between ourselves and Nature; and the complex relationships we nurture with those walls.
