Large Wind Action Spinning Turning Head Owls Bird &hellip by KD & JAY
It is too light to stand on its own in the lightest of breeze and its head doesn't move in the wind it just lolls!

5.0 out of 5 stars evocative of an era, 29 Sep 2003
This sparcely and beautifully written book transports the reader to a world of collisions. The end of the 19th century forms the setting for an (unbelievabley) true story of the chicago world fair and the serial killer who haunted it. The picture painted of the rise of modernity (litereally in the form of skyscapers) clashing with the past - creating a vaccum of naivety into which Holmes lures his victims, is so real that it in may ways echoes the unsteadyness of the world today.
