Summary: An intriguing & historical book on callmakers. The first on this important aspect of American folk art. Over 230 past & present callmakers, their life calls, hunting stories & experiences. Recipes & a few short stories by the author. The sequence of each callmaker's calls, time frame of calls produced, numbers produced & a rating system giving the collectability of each. From D.D. Adams, the inventor of the double sl...ate, to Robert Armstrong, the blind callmaker, Walter Winterbottom's fence post call to Zirkle's Roberts Museum, there is a wealth of information contained. Over 30,000 miles traveled with most interviews conducted in person by the author.
