Thumbrings are considered an essential component of archery tackle in many parts of the world, yet they are for the most part "unknown" in the Western world. With the ever growing popularity of horse bows and other Eastern archery bows, the thumbring has piqued the interest of many archers.
This book will help bridge the gap of understanding the unique shooting style that thumbrings offer. In this book the author treats the reader to a journey, a trans-cultural experience with the common thread of archery and specifically thumbrings intertwined.
