This book is designed to introduce the beginning archery student to the equipment and skills associated with this popular lifetime activity. Archery provides a minimal physiological stimulus for counteracting the negative effects of a sedentary lifestyle. Walking, bending, and the muscular contractions required to pull the bow are useful in helping develop and maintain minimal physical fitness.

This third edition contains a new format for the book as well as expanded information in many of the chapters. The information in this book is the culmination of several years of teaching archery and suggestions provided by the many physical educators who have used the text.
