Extract from back cover of book:

Forever fascinated by canes, Tom Wolfe has always collected them - he even has his grandma and grandpa's walking sticks. And, as a professional woodcarver, he knows there's a good market for them.

Walking sticks come in three basic categories: the cane, which is a walking aid or a gentleman's walking stick; the staff or hiking stick, which is head high; and the chest-high quarterstaff, which Tom's grandpa used to call a "thumb stick."

Each of these types is generously represented among the 86 patterns in this book. Their designs include everything from fish to dragons and birds to beavers. This is a valuable reference book for all carvers.

About the Author: Tom Wolfe is a native of West Virginia who lives and works at his Mountain Meadow Studio in West Jefferson, North Carolina. He began carving at the age of twelve and has become one of America's most recognized and respected carvers. The author of seventeen books for carvers, he has helped thousands of people develop their skills.
