Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
Archery has been a human endeavor since prehistoric days. Cave paintings have been found that depict hunters armed with bows and arrows pursuing game. In the Middle Ages, bowmen were critical parts of armies in Europe and Asia. In America, the Plains Indians shone as among the finest mounted archers in recorded history. Now, archery remains a part of daily life for only a relative few human societies. In most instances, archery has become a sport taken up by individuals interested in honing their eye as marksmen and markswomen. This illustrated book provides an introduction to this sport. Brief sections are dedicated to the equipment, the techniques, and the preparation needed by those who may be taking up the sport. Throughout the narrative, illustrations support the key concepts presented. At the conclusion of the book, resources are provided for further and in-depth study. This format is one that will appeal to readers with a potential interest in archery or outdoor sports in general. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
