?For anyone interested in the bow as a hunting tool, it is an endless fascination.??Field & Stream

?The knowledge, experience and craftsmanship of the contributors are tributes to one of the great primitive hunting arts.? ?Gray?s Sporting Journal

?The authors, all accomplished bowyers and archers, describe in great detail how to build wooden bows.??Fine Woodworking

?The real deal, master wooden bowmakers who keep the ancient art alive.??The Coast Book Review

Many archers and bowhunters will be surprised to learn that a wooden bow, whose ancestry stretches 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.
These fascinating books open the door to the enjoyment and personal satisfaction of understanding and making traditional wooden weapons, which currently enjoy an explosive resurgence of popularity as archers rediscover their magic and turn away from the complexity of assembly-line bows.
With combined experience totalling over a century, the authors have constructed thousands of bows. Now they reveal their secrets and techniques in these three essential books, filled with history, humor, and practical advice?invaluable information for anyone interested in the age-old lure of archery.

JIM HAMM is the author of Bows and Arrows of the Native Americans (page 94). He writes regularly on the traditional bow for Field & Stream and other publications. A full-time bowyer, he gives seminars, classes, and lectures throughout the country on the art and skill of bowmaking. He lives in Azle, Texas.
