'This is a delightful little book concerned with the carving of antlers. The book is mainly centered on species, organisations and methods found in the Americas - there is a complete chapter devoted to measuring using the Boone and Crockett club method. That said, if you have an interest in collecting antlers, or indeed carving antlers, then this book will be a very welcome addition to the bookshelf. There is no doubt that antlers in today's society have incredible value. Handicraft techniques and carving methods have almost become a specialist form of artwork, and these intricate carvings command high prices. This book is an equal blend of natural history and instructional guide. It offers a fascinating survey of all things antler, from biology to the new ivory. Much practical instruction is conveyed to the reader regarding actual harvesting and carving, which will be instructional to both collectors and craftsmen.'
