I'm not sure what the previous reviewer expected, but meanwhile, back on earth...

This is a classic archery text, written by Ishi's physician, Dr. Saxton Pope, one of the namesakes of archery's Pope and Young Club. Taught to hunt by Ishi, Pope details the making of bows and arrows pre-1925 as well as hunting various game animals with them. A wonderful book from one of the grandfathers of making wooden bows as well as modern bowhunting.

Excellent book!!! I read this book as a young man and it helped me then to appreciate the history and art of a traditional archery --a sport that I had already loved.Saxton Pope did everyone a great favor in writing of his friendship with Ishi(the last of the Yani tribe)and of his companions, trying to emulate and improve on what the native master had taught them.I ordered this again after losing my original copy years ago, and found it revived my appreciation of this wonderful sport yet again.I have started using the information and techniques this time around to make arrows and soon a bow with my son.

Hunting with the Bow and Arrow was the first book I read on archery and hunting with the bow and arrow. I first read it more than 60 years ago when I was approximately 14 years of age. From it I became hooked on archery. I bought a reflex bow from a Penny's catalog and was off to the races. I learned to shoot from the book,starting at 10 feet and working my way back until I could hit a leaf in a tree. After this I went for squirrels. We were fortunate enough to live in a heavily wooded area that was rampant with squirrels. The first time I went out, my father said, "Son you are never going to get anything with that bow". Well I still remember the first shot I made. It was at a squirrel that was trapsing along a vine way approximately 20' above my head. When he saw me he took off and I shot. I don't know who was more suprised that I hit him, me or the squirrel. Well, I got five squirrels that outing and after that only hunted with my bow and arrows, which I also learned to make. Since that time I have gotten deer and other small game. I love now, at the age of 71 to make my own arrows, my own bows from osage orange and to tan the hides of the game I get.

Yes it was and is the greatest book one could read on hunting with the bow and arrow.

I discovered this book in a sideways sort of way. While working with Native American Rhetoric as a English graduate student, I read Theodora Kroeber's book "Ishi in Two Worlds" the account of the last known member of the Yahi tribe. During Ishi's final years, he developed a close friendship with his physician, Dr. Pope. Kroeber spoke of their mutual love for archery. I wondered if this could be the Pope of the Pope and Young Club who developed the scoring system for wild game taken with bow and arrow. The answer is yes, and that led me to this book. The book contains a brief account of Ishi written by Pope and discussions on the making of a traditional bow, arrows, quiver, and even arrow heads - all skills that were demonstrated to him by Ishi. While researching which of the several versions floating around would be the best purchase, I found several versions that excluded the photographs and diagrams that Pope included in the original book. This Kindle version (yellow and blue-gray horizontal pattern on front with the title in a framed box) includes all the photographs and diagrams. The Kindle price was less than any of the print copies available and the book has been easily accessable on my reader.

I rarely give 5 stars but this deserves every one.

The book begins with Pope's friendship with Ishi, 'the last wild indian' who taught him archery and hunting. He then covers his own experimentation with various types of genuine traditional bows, settling on the English Long Bow as his bow of choice. He goes into some detail on how to craft a bow and arrow before describing in vivid detail how to and his experience hunting various animals across North America.

Pope has a technical mind but with an obvious romantic bent which is reflected in his writing. He is rarely obnoxious and often humble, often humorous and always enjoyable to read. All his chapters are well titled as well, so you can easily skip anything you're not interested in (I skipped a lot of technical advice).

This is a genuine classic and well worth your time if you have an interest in the outdoors or archery more specifically. The price is rather low as well!

First of all, the seller was wonderful. The book arrived very quickly. The book itself is great. Anyone interested in the sport of bowhunting should read this book. The book provides the captivating story of how Dr. Saxton Pope and Ishi became friends, provides technical details relating to traditional archery, and contains many great hunting stories. Highly recommended.

This book is a great book for those who are into traditional archery. It gives us a great insight into the life of Ishi, the last wild American Indian. It gives us insight into the archery world before the invention of the compound bow and of making your own equipment. That is why I really enjoyed this book.
