Dean Torges has put together much more than a how-to book on building a hunting bow from Osage orange. With captivating prose, he skillfully brings to life the very essence of making a wooden bow. Not only does this book speak to the archer's heart, moving him to stand with rasp in hand, but it also provides the technical information necessary to build an osage hunting bow.  Dean, a skilled crafstman, takes us from tree, to stave, to chrysalis, to finished bow, providing great insight and prudent reasoning along each step of the way. Jan Adkins' illustrations provide the perfect supplement to Dean's words. This a great book for the begining or seasoned bowyer.  I find myself thumbing through this book all the time.
