Table of Contents

In this biography, world-class decoy carver Vincent Giannetto III comes of age in the Delaware River region. Growing up on his family's farmland in Beverly, New Jersey, Vincent felt the intimate call of the outdoors and forged a strong connection with the Delaware River. He longed to be one of the fiercely independent river rats, men who made their living from the land. Skipping school to spend time on the river, he watches the hunter-carvers, learning the role of the decoy while struggling to make his own without guidance from these secretive men.

Vincent, balancing family and structure with his passion for the outdoors, became as unique and valuable as the decoys he carved. He has been a guest of the White House, where his work was displayed on the White House Christmas tree and subsequently placed in the Smithsonian Institute.

Photographs of Vincent's work and his original drawings accompany this tale of an American dream come true.
