Antique decoys are among the hottest collectibles in the nation right now. With prime specimens commanding prices reaching well into the six-figure range, collectors see them as both an investment and a status symbol. Everybody wants them, but few can own the real thing. Loy Harrell, one of North America's pre-eminent decoy authorities, has crossed the country to gather photographs and information on the most valuable and sought-after decoys. This full-color masterpiece displays the greatest decoys of a bygone era, tells about their history and in some cases discusses their value. One of the specimens went for more than 600,000 dollars at a Sotheby's auction. Hunting, antique and waterfowl enthusiasts will want this book not only as a display of great artwork, but also as a valuable reference tool for these American treasures.
