Gray's Sporting Journal
For Hill, the longbow was not a "primitive" weapon but a sophisticated one, and in every chapter of this exciting book he measures himself against the flawless idea of it.

Meet the Author

Howard Hill devoted his life to the promotion of archery until his death in 1975. He is considered by many to be the greatest archer/hunter of all time. His bow work is featured in several movies, including Robin Hood, Dodge City, and They Died With Their Boots On. The list of awards he won is impressive, including 196 Field Archery tournaments in a row. He took well over 2,000 animals with his bow and arrow. He was the first white man to kill an elephant with a bow and arrow, and the only man to do it without the use of a poisoned arrow.

I read the original publication and enjoyed it. If you like the outdoors and traditional archery you will be captivated by this book. I hope this re-print will be as good as the original.
