This book is the only title that takes an in-depth look at the previously under appreciated Pacific Coast decoys, decoy carvers, and hunting traditions. Hundreds of decoys shown with black and white photography along with regional information on style, etc. and numerous biographies of carvers. The book took many years to produce and after publication delays, was finally released in 1990. It is thorough, well organized, and all encompassing. This book isn't meant to introduce a reader to the subject; instead, it is meant to be the ultimate source for a collector, curator, and scholar. Scarce.
