3. Traditional Bowyer's Handbook: How to build wooden bows and arrows: longbows, selfbows, & recurves.
Author: by Clay C Hayes
I can’t really explain my attraction to the bow and arrow. I can’t explain the pull of a camp fire either, or the ocean, or the open hills where you can see forever.It’s just there. These things are in all of us I think, some vestige of our primitive past buried so deep in our genome as to be inseparable from what it is to be human.
What we think of as civilization is a new experiment in the eyes of Father Time. Experts say that humans have been around for some fifty thousand years. We’ve been carrying the bow for maybe five thousand (atlatls and spears before that), and pushing the plow for maybe two thousand.
We have been hunters forever. We are built to run, to pursue big game on the open savannas, to kill and eat them. With the dwindling of the Pleistocene mega fauna, mammoths and such, the bow became more important and indeed helped to make us who we are today.
It still holds that attraction, same as the hearth. When I was a kid I would make crude bows from green plum branches, big at one end and small at the other. A discarded hay string would serve as a bowstring.

14. Zen in the Art of Archery
Author: by Herrigel Eugen
Zen and the Art of Poker. Zen and the Art of Knitting. Zen in the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. These are just a few of the books whose titles and philosophy can be traced back to Zen in the Art of Archery, the first book to introduce Zen Buddhism to a Western audience.
In this illuminating account, the author recounts his six-year study of archery as way to understand Zen. Under the guidance of one of Japan’s great archery masters, he gradually overcomes his initial inhibitions and begins to feel his way toward new ways of seeing and living.
The author writes, “The art of archery is rather like a preparatory school for Zen, for it enables the beginner to gain a clearer view, through the works of his own hands, of events which are not in themselves intelligible.”Mastering archery is not the key to achieving Zen, and this is not a practical guide to archery.
It is a fascinating introduction to Zen principles and learning, an excellent guide for practitioners and non-practitioners alike.
