This is an excellant book written by a wonderful gourd carver who I have met and received training from. She has years of experience and is one of the best in the country. She also shares much work from other carvers, many I am sure learned from her. You will be amazed by the beautiful work presented in this book. Thank you Lyn for this great gourd book!

My husband grew gourds last summer and kept muttering about not knowing what he was going to do with them. So, when I saw this and a couple of similar books, I knew he would love them, especially since he has done wood carver -- Eagle Scout that he was. This book hit the mark! He looked at his gourd books for weeks. I see more gourds in my garden future!

The is a very complete instructional book detailing a couple of carving techniques and demonstrating the effects in a variety of ways. It does not cover the wide range of applications I've seen in art carvings of this type that I was hoping for but it is thorough in what it does present. A good starter book.
