Loy S. Harrell Jr., author of "Decoys of Lake Champlain" 1996 and "Decoys, North Americas One Hundred Greatest" 2001, has traveled throughout North American photographing examples of outstanding duck, goose, swan and shorebird carvings of sixty makers. These decoys represent the finest efforts by these carvers and are documented as to create a legacy for generations to come. Many of the carvers are newly discovered, giving the readers exposure to a broad range of talent. This book will be an invaluable asset for folk art collectors, decoy aficionados, as well as historians of this art form. Decoys are now considered to be important investments and are widely collected. The decoys in this book represent not only the contemporary but the valued decoys of the future.
