Meet the unlikeliest of heroes: Gustav, a wooden goose decoy.
His story begins after his creation at the hands of an old German craftsman in 1930’s Illinois. Over the course of the next half century, he is pulled along by the current of rivers, pushed by the energy of providence and influenced by the power of the human spirit.
Through many travels and unexpected travails, his story offers a unique and insightful glimpse into the world of the waterfowler. Who would think that glass eyes, glued into a wooden head, could see the world so clearly?
