Lee,

Great idea for a post. I often look for things to fill my Kindle with. (TBM need to come out more often! 😀 )

One that I am sure you have read, but I mention it becuase it is one that really pushed me towards traditional archery is “Hunting the Hard Way” by Howard Hill. I’ve also enjoyed “The Crooked Stick: A History of the Longbow” by Hugh D. H. Soar. I also picked up “Zen in the Art of Archery” by Eugen Herrigel and Daisetz T. Suzuki but have not read it yet.

I also must give honorable mention to “If You Didn’t Bring Jerky, What Did I Just Eat: Misadventures in Hunting, Fishing, and the Wilds of Suburbia” by Bill Heavey. While it’s not a trad-bow book, it’s a really fun read. I love Bill Heavey’s writing style. He’s quite commical, but has the ability to make you think as well.

Hope it helps.

Alex
