Inhaltsangabe: An elegant and engaging look at the history of duck decoys -- from hunting aid to treasured collectible.
In The Decoy, Jim Poling, Sr. tells the fascinating story of these celebrated artifacts: from their earliest native inventors and their impact on European commerce, to their place in folk art and their status as a prized collectible.
As beautiful as it is informative, The Decoy includes 65 exquisite full-color images, photographed by Kim Stallknech from a private, and never-before-seen decoy collection. The book also includes an important chapter on how to conserve our waterfowl legacy. An attractive and engaging chronicle of these beloved artifacts, The Decoy will please hunters, sportsmen and decoy collectors alike.
