Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Expert bowhunter and archery traditionalist Dan Bertalan has compiled the most complete bowmaking text available today. By traveling coast to coast and consulting Americas top bowmakers, he has gathered the best information on how to build your own recurve longbow, improve your hunting skills, care properly for a bow, and more. Including descriptive photographs, diagrams, a complete glossary of terms, and reviews of particular bows that include draw/force measurements and hand-shot arrow speeds, this illuminating book will provide hunters, collectors, and others with invaluable insight into this specialized world.

Book News Annotation:

Bertalan, a noted expert on archery and bow hunting, has written the second edition of this dictionary to include new photographs, a new foreword, and a new philosophy, outlined in the author's statement, "It's ironic that the new millennium is perhaps the best time in the history of mankind to become a traditional archer." Concentrating on the craft of archery and the wide variety of equipment to choose from, this dictionary is a comprehensive resource for anyone thinking about picking up and bow and arrow, and heading out into the wilderness.
