Working as a part time wood carver at the Dollywood Theme Park in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, Larry Green often has the opportunity to demonstrate carving to visitors from around the nation. hardly a day goes by without at least one visitor asking, “Why carve shoes?”The main reason, according to Larry, is the challenge of transforming a block of wood into a boot or shoe, giving it a unique design, character and personality. The shoes become works of art to which most people can relate.With step-by-step, color illustrated instructions, Larry gets the reader started on the “right foot.” Five boot and shoe projects are described in detail, including a baby shoe, a work book, a cowboy boot, a “Storm” boot, and a ski boot. A gallery includes several other styles, including the Old Lady in the Shoe’s shoe.
