I have just come from the alt.archery newsgroup where there is a posting entitled "Wooden Bows". I suggest you read it

Dean Torges wrote a great book about making selfbows, called "Hunting the Osage Bow". Not onlys is the technical stuff good, but his writing style is very poetic and each chapter is either started or finished by a beautiful story. You can probably find it at any traditional archery shop. Osage is a really cool wood from which to make a selfbow and also the most popular one. I love the bright yellow color and how a little sunbathing turns it dark orange over time. Love that osage! – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text -> My son & I want to make and learn to shoot traditional (non-recurve, > non-crossbow) bows to add to our father & son experiences.

I own the Traditional Bowyer’s Bible. It is very technical and probably not so poetic as Hunting the Osage Bow. I paid around $20.00 for it a few years ago. You could probably find it for less now. good luck. shane jones
