Bows, Arrows, & Quivers
(from the dust-jacket end-flaps)

Native Americans and their elegant weapons have provided an undeniable mystique for archers, history buffs, collectors, and anyone who appreciates traditional skills. For the first time, authors Allely and Hamm have brought together the most exceptional archery pieces from eastern tribes such as the Mohecan, Mohawk, Cherokee, Seminole, Chippewa, and Winnebago. Beautifully detailed full-page pen-and-ink drawings give dimensions, decorations, and construction details on more than a hundred historic bows, scores of arrows, and two dozen quivers. The running commentary is drawn from research conducted in museums around the world, and gives insights into who used these instruments and how.

This pathbreaking and comprehensive book will strongly appeal to all those with an abiding interest in Native Americans and archery. Steve Allely's drawings and oil paintings grace museums and galleries throughout the West. He demonstrates his skills as an accomplished flintknapper and bowmaker for the U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service, various museums, and educational programs for Native American tribes. He lives in central Oregon.
