North American Bows, Arrows, and Quivers

An Illustrated History

Book - 2007
Rate this:
Otis Tufton Mason, the founder of the Anthropologist Society of Washington, details the history of the archery tools used by the native peoples throughout the North American continent. Hundreds of precise line drawings showcase the many varieties of bows, arrows, and quivers they crafted, and beautifully rendered images display tools and materials. Sketched diagrams demonstrate exactly how the arrowpoints were mounted and the bows assembled. Nearly all the illustrations are accompanied by an explanatory page of authoritative information, and Mason's writing reveals his deep appreciation and admiration of the work he's presenting and the people who created it.
