    Review quote
    "For anyone interested in the bow as a hunting tool. . . endless fascination."--Field & Stream
    Back cover copy
    Many archers and bowhunters will be surprised to learn that a wooden bow, whose ancestry dates back thousands of years, will shoot an arrow as fast and as effectively as the most modern fiberglass-laminated bows. Never before have such detailed instructions been available for the home craftsman, with information on how to make fine bows and arrows from natural materials. The authors thoroughly explain every facet of the process, from choosing wood to applying finishes, making construction easy even for the first-time bowyer. With combined experience totaling over a century, the authors have constructed over thousands of bows. Now they reveal their secrets and techniques in The Traditional Bowyer's Bible series, three essential volumes filled with history, humor, and practical advice - invaluable information for anyone interested in the age-old lure of archery. Volume One introduces the traditional bow, seasoning and cutting wood, bow design and performance, finishes and handles, and much more. (6 X 9, 320 pages, b&w photos, diagrams, charts)
