From Library Journal
Released in 1992, 1993, and 1994, respectively, this trio provides a remarkably in-depth analysis of the bow from its construction to its correct use. Numerous types of bows and arrows from all over the world are discussed by leading experts in the field. The emphasis here is on the history of these weapons and methods for building them from scratch, just as they were made before the advent of firearms. Though this might not find a huge audience, it is nonetheless an excellent series.

From the Back Cover
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 Two covers ancient European bows, Eastern Woodland bows, recurves, strings, steel points, quivers, and much more.
