ABOUT THE BOOK
What Others Are Saying About This Book:
"In writing this exhaustively researched account of his life and work, Patrick Garner has done all of us a great favor. He corrects some often repeated misinformation about early American rod makers, as well as introducing some still intriguing mysteries. This work should go a long way towards creating a greater understanding and appreciation of Eustis Edwards' work -- which is truly seminal in American rod making."
Per Brandin, contemporary bamboo rodmaker
"Well done with a zeal for accuracy! Kudos!"

"Garner was able to piece some of the lost periods [of Edwards' life] together through his research....The true value of the book comes with the many color photographs which show the variety of rods Edwards made available...[for example] there are great photos, and written sections, to help identify which Edwards actually placed the Edwards script on the rod shaft. All told it reaffirmed my thoughts of the genius of Eustis Edwards."
-- Sante L. Giuliani, The Planing Form (Jan/Feb 2009)
