Extract from back cover of book:

A new collection of Woodspirits, this time done in the traditional Bavarian way. Carved from a section of a tree, the branch forms the hat. Of course, Tom brings his own inimitable style to the carving, making it lively and creative.

As always he takes the carver step-by-step through the carving process. There can be no pattern, because each Woodspirit springs from a unique piece of wood. But the technique and the sequence of carving can be easily learned through the step-by-step color illustrations. A gallery of several Woodspirits will give the carver many ideas about the variety and variations they can obtain when they release the Spirits from the Wood.

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.
