"An avid outdoorsman, Peter Pringle began carving decoys in 1898 and in 1928 set himself the goal of producing the best rig of decoys in the world. Employing his skills as a commercial artist and going to great lengths to ensure the utmost accuracy, he fashioned approximately 120 of what many now consider to be among the finest examples of duck decoy art. Because he carved exclusively for his own use and made only a few decoys for close friends, his work remained largely unknown until recently." "William Reeve chronicles Peter Pringle's life and achievements, showing why his duck decoys are celebrated today. He traces their fate after Pringle's death in 1953 and establishes their creator firmly as one of the greatest practitioners of his craft."--Jacket.
