Jeffrey Moore lives in the Laurentian Mountains outside Montreal. As well as being one of the most highly acclaimed Canadian novelists today, he translates plays and film scripts and other literary texts from French to English.
Celeste is thirteen years old. The only thing that really matters to her is the wild animals of her homeland - the Laurentian Mountains in Canada - which are dying out, one by one. She has spent recent years quietly fighting the local hunters and poachers, but they've finally caught up with her, beaten her to a pulp and left her for dead. When a wanderer by the name of Nile, who is hiding out, escaping the law in the US, finds her in a ditch, she is barely breathing. Through a drug-fuelled haze, he nurses Celeste back to health and together they set out to take on the men who have destroyed the natural wildlife and who hold the town in thrall. Working alone, in a place where man and his gun is king, they find themselves facing grave danger at every turn, trying anything to stop the bears, birds and panthers joining the extinction club...
Follow along with master carver Jeffrey Moore to create a dramatic and lifelike representation of the striking blue wing teal drake. Jeff starts with a preshaped, duplicated wooden bird to simplify the rough carving process, then demonstrates the use of burning and high speed texturing equipment to achieve wonderful carving detail and realistic features. Once the carving is completed, the book takes the reader through each aspect of the airbrushing and brush painting steps needed to complete the teal's body, tail, head, and outstretched wing. In addition, Jeff demonstrates how to create realistic-looking sand and water for the accompanying habitat base. Throughout, detailed instructions accompany the full color photographs. This is a carving project you will treasure for many years to come.
