Re: "Straight and True: A Select History of the Arrow"
I received an email from Amazon stating that the previous estimated arrival date of October 18, 2012 - November 20, 2012 that Amazon had given me has now been changed to October 01, 2012
- October 02, 2012
. That's good news!
I also note that the Fall Issue [Volume Four, Issue Three] of TradArchers' World
that I just received has a nice review of "Straight and True -A Select History of the Arrow
" by Hugh D. H. Soar. It mentions that "The arrow, essentially a specialized spear, is among the most ancient human inventions and can be found in cultures throughout the world...". The review goes on to note: "Within this brief History of the arrow, Hugh D. H. Soar describes the transition from hand-thrown spear to bow-launched arrow and then follows the arrow's developments in cultures around the world and across time."
The review is well written. If I was Ole Steen, I would be looking at my own copy now! But, next week isn't too far away!
