Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"For anyone interested in the bow as a hunting tool. . . endless fascination."—Field & Stream
Library Journal
Released in 1992, 1993, and 1994, respectively, this trio provides a remarkably in-depth analysis of the bow from its construction to its correct use. Numerous types of bows and arrows from all over the world are discussed by leading experts in the field. The emphasis here is on the history of these weapons and methods for building them from scratch, just as they were made before the advent of firearms. Though this might not find a huge audience, it is nonetheless an excellent series. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
