"For anyone interested in the bow as a hunting tool... endless fascination."--Field & Stream

Buchrückseite

Many archers and bowhunters will be surprised to learn that a wooden bow, whose ancestry dates 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. With combined experience totaling over a century, the authors have constructed over thousands of bows. Now they reveal their secrets and techniques in The Traditional Bowyer's Bible series, three essential volumes filled with history, humor, and practical advice - invaluable information for anyone interested in the age-old lure of archery. Volume One introduces the traditional bow, seasoning and cutting wood, bow design and performance, finishes and handles, and much more. (6 X 9, 320 pages, b&w photos, diagrams, charts)

Format: Taschenbuch
The Traditional Bowyers Bible is the best book on the subject I have read so far on this interesting subject. All 3 volumes are worth having, but this one, the first volume, offers the beginning bowyer a complete course in building a wooden bow. I disagree with an earlier reviewer of this book on its value to the beginner. I am a novice bowyer (bow-builder) if not a novice archer, and I thought the book was especially valuable. In fact that seems tobe exactly the person Hamm and the other contributors to this book seem to have had in mind....All three books come under the heading of "don't miss", but this one in particular is a "DON'T miss"...

Format: Taschenbuch
I have read a couple of books on bowmaking and traditional archery in general. For instance, I hugely enjoyed, and profited from, Comstock's Bent Stick and various German books on the subject. Yet, being a physicist, I liked this one best.
Approaching the subject in a thorough, almost scientific manner sure did appeal to me, but I am convinced the book still succeeds in making its invaluable guidance palatable and digestible even to the layman who wants to nothing but build and shoot traditional bows.

1) I have not found a better description of bow physics anywhere else,
2) the chapters on yew and osage orange, while being dedicated to these specific woods, are still sufficiently general for any bowyer to profit from the, and they are complemented by a chapter on "other woods",
3) the description of the tillering process is the best and most encouraging I have ever read (and, trust me, I have read quite a few),
4) the chapter on self arrows is so full of information that I fail to identify a particular issue addressed.

All in all, when reading the book and highlighting the eye-opening passages, I was glad I did this during a vacation and had a lot of time, because there is just so much stuff that I either failed to read anywhere else or never found so well put before.

To me, it sure is the most comprehensive, instructive and valuable book on bowmaking currently available.

Keep history alive 8. Januar 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I'm at a loss for words. Absolutly fantastic. I searched and I searched for scraps of information on this subject, and finally ran across this book. I was completely overwhelmed by all the well-presented information the authors managed to pack into 300+ pages. Two sleepless nights of solid reading passed and now I seem find my way into the forest to cut bowstaves every time I leave the house.

necessary for beginning bowyers 3. Juli 2005
Von Uoonggie Yi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
this book is essential for anyone who wants to make archery tackle out of natural materials. i still go to school and archery has taken hold of my interest. i spent hours on the computer scraping bits of information until i came upon this book online. after reading it through, all my problems were solved. this book has all the basics. from wood choosing to laying out your bow to designing practical bows from all kinds of woods. however, if you are in an area that has plenty of trees but are forbidden to cut it, then you are probably stuck with making board bows (which are cheap at 3.50 for an 11 ft piece) and for more info on board bows, then the 2nd vol. of this series is probably the best.

this book is a very good book for bowyers and got me started and i am still hooked (a year and three broken bows after. apparently the average bowmaker breaks 12 bows before making a good one :)

In-Depth Content, Topically Organized 22. April 2009
Von New England Yankee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
(This review pertains to the first three volumes as a whole. I do not own the new 4th volume ... yet.)

The Traditional Bowyer's Bible can be reviewed fairly briefly.

On the pro side:

- The authors are traditional archery experts.
- The content is wide-ranging, covering longbows, recurves, flatbows, backed bows, composite bows, takedowns, asymmetrical bows, arrows, nocks, fletching, backings, finishing, tools, etc. Virtually every bow type is represented and from every area of the world and from ancient history to the present day.
- The books contain original material, such as information on hysterisis.
- The content covers basics to very advanced topics.
- Though the authors express individual preferences here and there(bow types, woods, etc.), taken as a whole the material is quite neutral and fact-based.
- Design is emphasized as much as construction, perhaps more so. I'd go further and say the intent of the series is to teach foundational material and definitely not to present simple how-to instructions. I've made bows using these books, but see comments below, too.
- There is very little throw-away material, here meaning text that preaches to the choir about the virtues of traditional archery.

On the con side:

- The material is topically organized (e.g., design, tillering, woods). While that's terrific for the topic, it isn't the best for the step-by-step how-do-I-make-a-bow reader. You really have to read the bulk of the material to put it together.
- These may not be the best books for someone just starting out in traditional archery. The authors presume basic knowledge of archery and terminology. A newcomer, unless extraordinarily enthusiastic, will be overwhelmed.
- There's a lot of line drawing illustrations. I would prefer photos.
- The multiple volume approach isn't really necessary, given the size of each, drives up the price of the total, and I would like to see the series published in a single volume.

The cons are nits, however. This book series provides an extremely comprehensive view of traditional archery and is a must-have on the bookshelf of anyone interested in the topic.

Great book, but... 1. Mai 2003
Von Jason Cook - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Where are the definitions? This book goes into every nuance about making a bow, as described by absolutely fanatical bowyers. A little bit of humor and a few personal stories are related, making it a more entertaining read. Every chapter is quite thorough and caters to the novice except the longest (at around 75 pages) and most important chapter, "Bow Design & Performance," which for some reason assumes that you know what tillering, set, draw weight, draw length, string height, string stretch, etc., mean. Some of these terms are somewhat self-explanatory and some are given specific attention, but again, the basics are ignored. I had to skip the chapter and read further for tidbits of clarification and then had to go to some other sources to become familiar with just what these terms mean. What is a "bible" on a subject without the basics described thoroughly?
