Otis Tufton Mason, the founder of the Anthropologist Society of Washington, details the history of the archery tools used by the native peoples throughout the North American continent. Hundreds of precise line drawings showcase the many varieties of bows, arrows, and quivers crafted by the Native Tribes. Sketched diagrams demonstrate exactly how the arrow points were mounted and the bows assembled.

Nearly all the illustrations are accompanied by a descriptive page of authoritative information. Mason's writing reveals his deep appreciation and admiration of the work he's presenting and the people who created it.

"The results of Mason's labor will have a permanent place beside those who have been foremost in promoting the science of Anthropology; and many of his writings will be utilized by future generations." - American Anthropologist.
