Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

It is difficult to imagine the great wilderness that existed in the United States before the modern age, and yet we are only 100-some years removed from a land that was densely populated — with forests and animals. Saxton Pope had the benefit of contact with one of the last members of the Yahi tribe in California, and from him he learned and perfected the art of bow hunting. His incomparable 1922 guide, Hunting with the Bow and Arrow, reflects both the close relationship Pope shared with that Yahi tribesman and a bygone era that is today emulated by the Pope and Young Club. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Taschenbuch
An Saxton Popes Bedeutung für die Geschichte des traditionellen Bogenschießens im 20. Jahrhundert kann kaum ein Zweifel bestehen. Der Ruf dieser Koryphäe des Bogensports und seiner Werke verleitet wohl manch einen dazu, sich auf Kosten seiner Anhänger zu bereichern ' wie es hier der Fall zu sein scheint.
Popes Text gilt in den USA als gemeinfrei und kann aus verschiedenen Quellen bezogen werden. Das machten sich die Herausgeber zunutze, um ihn gedruckt und mit Softcover versehen in den Handel zu bringen. Satzspiegel und Seitenzählung haben dabei nichts mit dem Original gemeinsam (es handelt sich also weder um einen "Reprint" noch um ein Faksimile) und es fehlen sämtliche Illustrationen.
Zwei Sterne also dafür, dass Popes Werk selbst in dieser Form noch lesenswert ist. Wer nur auf den Text aus ist, kann zugreifen, alle anderen lassen es besser sein.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A classic archery title 1. August 2008
Von Bois d'Arc - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Book 14. Januar 2009
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Best Book for Beginners and oldsters 29. Mai 2013
Von Timothy Edward Telge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Required Reading for Longbow Hunters 25. April 2013
Von mark seghers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The charm of the writing, with its dated, flowery language and romantic tone, is perfectly counterbalanced with the unapologetic, bloody reality of the hunt. These guys did it, as Tred Barta put it, the hard way. But even Tred never had it so hard. They made their own gear. No fleece. No gortex. No GPS. No cell phones or game cams. They hunted until they killed, or found it absolutely impossible to kill. And they tracked for days, practiced for hours, trained for months. If you have picked up a traditional bow to hunt, this is the book for you. If you have killed game with rifle and have picked up a traditional bow to remember what hunting is like, you won't be able to put this book down.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Purchased for Kindle Fire HD 7. September 2013
Von Michael D Reese - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
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.
