Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While vintage decoys are fetching high prices as antiques, they began life as hunters' tools used to lure ducks from the sky to the dinner plate. Barber's 1934 volume has long been a standard for carving and molding duck and geese decoys. The text offers numerous pictures as well as patterns and loads of advice on creating the decoys and deploying them, along with information on the real birds. This book now will do double duty with bird hunters and antiques hunters. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
