Longbow tells the wild adventures of Jay and Karen Campbell, who chase big game with the longbow in Australia, Alaska, Hawaii, and the Caribbean. Jay Campbell weaves their complicated life and deadly encounters with big rivers and big animals through these stories, while still showing us the joy is in the journey. E. Donnall Thomas Jr. says Longbow is "sure-footed prose," Allen Jones calls it "damn fine writing," and Gene Wensel says "Campbell writes vividly."

"Adventure and excitement have their place, to be sure. I can't chase anything with a longbow and not feel a thrill. But thrills need perspective. The how and why of hunting is more important than the what, or the where, or with whom. I have tried to bring that perspective to these pages along with excitement. The perspective that in hunting - as in life - the joy is in the journey. The outcome is an afterthought." - Jay CampbellAbout the Author:
