> Just received a copy of Stephen Selby's new book on Chinese archery called
> (appropriately enough), "Chinese Archery."

> throughout. Covered in the book is the history of Chinese archery, famous
> people involved, rituals, crafting of equipment (bows, arrows, targets),
> etc., all the way up to the past century. Some entertaining stories are
> which bring the subject to life.
> If you have any interest in Asian archery, horn bows, history of archery,
