A Study Of Bows And Arrow. He said the fact that the author studied with people who were there when archery first became popular in America makes the information priceless. He feels some of the information is a little clouded due to the lack of knowledge at the time, but from a historical standpoint it is a very good read. His only complaint was that he wished the diagrams and pictures would have been closer to the parts in the book where they were mentioned to avoid constantly flipping back and forth.

It made a lasting impression

Only 10 left in stock (more on the way). It made a lasting impression. In time I found the book in paperback.

The book is full of interesting information but I wouldn't want to draw many major conclusions from Pope's findings. For example, a solitary Ute Indian bow and arrow might not be nearly typical of most Ute bows with arrows. He is usually working with 'one of a kind' artifacts and it is unwise, in my opinion, to base opinions on the bow making or arrow making qualities of an entire group or tribe of people based on a solitary specimen. No doubt some individuals made good stuff, others not so good

I got the book for my husband, who is a bowyer. He said the fact that the author studied with people who were there when archery first became popular in America makes the information priceless. He feels some of the information is a little clouded due to the lack of knowledge at the time, but from a historical standpoint it is a very good read. His only complaint was that he wished the diagrams and pictures would have been closer to the parts in the book where they were mentioned to avoid constantly flipping back and forth. He said he definitely recommends this to anyone who is getting into archery, and wants to know more about the history of the sport.

The book is full of interesting information but I wouldn't want to draw many major conclusions from Pope's findings. He is usually working with 'one of a kind' artifacts and it is unwise, in my opinion, to base opinions on the bow making or arrow making qualities of an entire group or tribe of people based on a solitary specimen. For example, a solitary Ute Indian bow and arrow might not be nearly typical of most Ute bows with arrows. No doubt some individuals made good stuff, others not so good. Also, it is unlikely that a particular tribesman gave up his best stuff to an itinerant anthropologist. Give him something that's about to break, anyway.

Also, I disagree with Pope that his antique bows are in every way as strong now as they were when first made. What sense does that make? He actually broke some old and brittle bows and others got to creaking and cracking so badly that he couldn't shoot them

Most interestingly, however, is the fact the the Univ. of Calif., Berkely, museum and wealthy collectors would put valuable artifacts in Pope's hands for 'testing'. Weird by today's standards. Nowadays only an expert with a special need MIGHT be permitted to touch one and nobody would be permitted to bend one. His hunting experiences are perhaps the best part of the book in that he was one of the first modern archers to actually go out and shoot numerous deer and several grizzly bears with a bow.

It did not have the kind of information I was looking for. However it did have a lot of other interesting information.
