Meet the unlikeliest of heroes: Gustav, a wooden goose decoy.

His story begins after his creation at the hands of an old German craftsman in 1930's Illinois. Over the course of the next half century, he is pulled along by the current of rivers, pushed by the energy of providence and influenced by the power of the human spirit.

Through many travels and unexpected travails, his story offers a unique and insightful glimpse into the world of the waterfowler. Who would think that glass eyes, glued into a wooden head, could see the world so clearly?

From the Back Cover:

I am an addict! I have been hopelessly addicted to waterfowl hunting for over 40 years and I hope I get many more of those wonderful years. I have a granddaughter about to join our ranks and I can hardly wait to sit in the blind and tell her stories about her Daddy and his hunting exploits as a youngster.

Ninety percent of this book is based on my personal experiences; having haunted and hunted the famed Platte River since I was a teenager and later operated a goose guide service in Missouri. Now I'm back in Nebraska, back on the Platte River and happy as a goose in a pile of corn.

Ten percent of this book allows for a little "Kentucky Windage". Some folks say I'm pretty good at tha..... but hey, what do they know????

My primary reason for writing this book is that there are such a small number of books written today that offer a good waterfowl hunting tale. I miss reading those books. If you miss them, you will surely enjoy this one.

About the Author:

I am an addict! I have been hopelessly addicted to waterfowl hunting for over 50 years and I hope I get many more of those wonderful years. I have a granddaughter and grandson about to join our ranks and I can hardly wait to sit in the blind with them, frying taters and eggs and telling them stories about their Daddy and his hunting exploits as a youngster. A great deal of this book is based on my personal experiences; having haunted and hunted the famed Platte River since I was a teenager. A small portion of this book allows for a little "Kentucky Windage". Some folks say I'm pretty good at that..... but hey, what do they know?
