This episode of Big Blend Radio's "Way Back When" History show features Anthony Moss, a Rabologist and author of the newly released book, “A Visual History of Walking Sticks and Canes,” published by Rowman & Littlefield.

"A Visual History of Walking Sticks and Canes" is a comprehensive study of walking canes from around the world, dating from the distant past to the modern-day. The book presents a historical context on both practical and ceremonial usage. There are 898 full-color specially shot pictures showcasing the celebrated A&D Collection of canes, each with a history and story. More than just a mobility aid, the cane can be a weapon, indicate stature, denote high status, or be used as a fashion accessory. More at https://antiquecanes.net/
