Anything by Don Thomas is fantastic.

My book (A Traditional Bowhunter's Path), which has a Foreword by Don, is getting good reviews too.

If you buy from my website, I donate 10% to Compton Traditional Bowhunters or Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, the choice is yours.

You can also buy directly from Amazon.

Anything by C.J. Box, but especially his Joe Pickett novels. Joe Pickett is a Wyoming game warden and Mr. Box, a former warden himself I believe, truly brings Joe Pickett to life. Easy reading with short, quick chapters, and plenty of action and suspense. Great for reading while sitting quietly waiting for just the right opportunity. I've read everything Box has written and have not been disappointed yet. I suggest trying to read the Joe Pickett series in order. You can find the books on the auction site without a lot of trouble at reasonable prices. [campfire]

Legendary hunts. Great read. Lots of great stories, not necessarily bowhunting, but still really good.

For history buffs,plus it is outdoor themed read Undaunted Courage by Steven Ambrose about the Lewis and Clark Expedition.You will read about sheer determination and exploration at it best.It is truly amazing what these men endured and the navigation and mapping that was completed along the way.Enjoy

Probably the best bowhunting book in my own library is "The best of Traditional Bowhunter".

I just got finished reading "Grandma Gatewood's Walk", by Ben Montgomery. Not a hunting story. She was a 67 year old mother of 11 that solo walked the Appalachian Trail in the 1950s and 60s. Easy read and interesting story.
