About the Author
Dr. Saxton Pope became the personal physican for ISHI, the last primitive native american in 1911 when the Ishi was brought to live on the campus of The University of California. There, they became good freinds and Dr. Pope learned to enjoy Ishi's many outdoor talents. Soon, the well seasoned archer and bowmaker Will "Cheif" Compton met Dr. Pope and later, Arthur Young arrived. Mr. Compton taught Pope and Young how to make and use archery equipment. This mixture of sportsmen and talent inpired the able writings of Saxton Pope, thus spawning the birth of recreational bowhunting. Pope and Young traveled to distant lands as far as Africa to take Lions with their sticks and strings. Both men wrote many articles in the sporting magazines of their time and Saxton Pope wrote 5 books, "The Medical History of Ishi", "Yahi Archery", "A Study of Bows and Arrows", "Hunting with the Bow & Arrow", and "Adventurous Bowmen". He is truely the father of modern recreational bowhunting
