An Exciting Read Jun 14, 2012
by Alan F
This book recounts the archery career of Dr Saxton Pope, together with his experiences with and tutelage from Ishi, the last Yana indian (and to think that this was just 100 years ago).
The tales of hunting with the bow may not be to the taste of some modern people, but not so long ago, if you did not shoot something with your bow you and your family went hungry. Indeed, in many areas of the world, this situation still pertains.
The descriptions of and advice on making archery equipment will be invaluable to the practically inclined archer and interesting to the general reader. I can heartily recommend it to the reader interested in outdoor sports or primitive technology.
