Wild Geese Flying
Wild Geese Flying, by Deborah Van Dyken and illustrated by Jamison Ipock
A little boy named Alex learns about the wild geese who fly in the sky over the coastal waters of North Carolina. By day, his grandfather introduces him to the traditional art of carving decoys of ducks and geese in his workshop, and by night, the geese take Alex on a fantastical adventure.
This book appeals to North Carolina coastal conservationists, bird enthusiasts, and the duck decoy community. Its story passes on a long tradition of revering ducks and geese as a vital part of the natural wonders found in North Carolina.
