    Explored in detail are acquiring tools and wood, designing, cutting, shaping and bringing the bow to a perfect arc; recurving and reflexing, backing, and finishing; snakeskin backing, making quivers and cases, and strings - all with techniques that are understandable to even the beginning bowyer. Also illustrated and explained is shooting the way that Native Americans did years ago.

    Written for the beginning craftsman and with over 150 illustrations, photos, charts and diagrams, this book will be invaluable to anyone interested in traditional weapons of the American Indian, their culture and early Americana.
