Excerpt

Though very reserved, he was kindly, honest, cleanly, and trustworthy. More than this, he had a superior philosophy of life, and a high moral standard.

By degrees I learned to speak his dialect, and spent many hours in his company. He told us the folk lore of his tribe. More than forty myths or animal stories of his have been recorded and preserved.

"Hunting With the Bow and Arrow" is a true story about a doctor (Saxton Pope) and a Yana Indian “Ishi”. Ishi was found as the last remaining tribesman, brought ill to the doctor. They became friends. Ishi teaches the doctor forest-lore, hunting and bow-craft.

It’s possibly a bit heavy on the archery for someone not interested (but if you are even better). It also gives insight into traditional hunting methods. The initial (true) story about finding Ishi is absolutely fascinating, and overall the book is interesting, yet easy to read.
