Format: Paperback
It is a wonderful pattern book for scrolsaw users. I started my wood hobby last September & kept looking for animal patterns. I found some ... BUT they are not nearly as good as this book by Lora Irish. The drawings are so realistic, clear & crisp & the lines are not too big or too dark but just right. Also you can easily see what inside cutting is called for. Some patterns I've tried are very hard to determine where to cut and the animals dont look real. That is not the case with this book; it's great. I have 14 pattern books on different subjects and North America Wildlife is my favorite. Yes, I certainly recomnmenbd this book. If you like animal patterns I dont think you'll be disappointed. Currently I am waiting to receive her book called World Wildlife Patterns... cant wait for it to get here.

I am always looking for patterns to cut on my scroll saw and I must say I am really picky about the designs I decide to cut. I purchased this book for the wildlife designs and they are all top notch. You will not be disappointed with the quality Lora Irish, puts into her designs. I highly recommend this book. Its worth double its cost.

The book listed has a lot of great patterns in it, but there are no instructions with the patterns. If you are an accomplished scroller then this book is fine, but if you are a beginner I would not suggest it.

This is a great book for beginning and advanced scroll saw artist. The patterns are easy to use and with a little of imagination can lead to great gifts like book ends and sconces.

Purchased as a gift. Did notice that patterns would need to be traced and then enlarged in some instances.
