Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
10/15/2013
Flint knapping is the process of shaping stone by hand into an edged tool, such as an Indian arrowhead or a flint blade. Turner, flint knapping expert and instructor at Sussex University in England, introduces the creation and history of these prehistoric tools. This British import shows some general knapping techniques, but the black-and-white line drawings are small and pixelated. The organization is not linear and meanders between history and instruction. While there is a small gallery of color photos, there are none where it really matters, particularly for stone and material identification. VERDICT There are no step-by-step or detailed illustrations to assist the beginner, and the focus on history crowds out instruction. Sadly, Turner's book does not live up to its promise. For a better selection, try Monte Burch's Making Native American Hunting, Fighting, and Survival Tools.

    If you are an app post here. Please include your age, gender, and possible idead for a warrior name (ideas are not certain names) Apps must be at least 11 moons (with the exception of option B) to become warriors, again 2 weeks=6 moons. Update your age dayly. When you either A) Reach 11 moons or older and have a final assespsment or B) Complete a great act of bravery such as saving a kit from kitnappers of fighting in a large battle you will become a warrior. *please note that being forcemated and having kits will not speed up you becoming a warriorm* Ex: Owlpaw. Female. 9 1&half moons. Owlfeather, Owlflight, or Owlcall. -&#8476&#9390
