North American Bows, Arrows, and Quivers: An Illustrated History Reviews
Nice book to start with.
I choose a 5 star rate for it historical renderings and it has cut away drawings of the bow limbs arrows and various tips.
The book was ok....but exactly what I expected
better then i thought and service bang on+++++++
Very detailed book about amerindians bows and arrows.
This book was purchased for the Montana Bowhunter Education Foundation, it contains a great deal of information, was well written, easy to follow, and easy to find the specific info that you're looking for. We would recommend this book.
This book is a waste of time and money for anyone wanting info on how to build a bow of any kind. The illustrations are hand drawn and not very good. If you saw this author in person, you would classify him as a person that likes to hear himself talk. It's a poor history lesson, in that a lot of the regions he talks about are not named with todays names.
This book is an excellent reference on Native American weapons i give it 20 stars and A++++++++++++++++
