This book was designed as a memorial to the great collector Bill Mackey. Numerous color and black and white photographs. The author and other passionate contributors looked at the birds, the makers, the history of decoys, and the change over time of the both decoys and their real models all while appreciating the decoys as folk art. The authors' knowledge of hunting and history made their commentary particularly interesting.
