Excellent Bowie Knife fighting book!

This is a book any Bowie knife enthusiast should own-even if you only collect them. This info truly gives insight on the historical aspect of Bowies and the people who carried them, fought with them, and sometimes died by them. As a Martial Arts info book it is superb, it's incredibly difficult to make an "instruction manual" for any fighting style-it requires hands-on instruction. However McLemore has done a fine job of making this book into something you can read and come away knowing enough to make it worthwhile. To become good or certainly if you want to master any art you will have to practice a lot & seek further individual instruction, but this book is a fine primer for those interested in this fairly unknown but lethal art. It also fits in well with other well-known instructors' systems and not only adds to it, but gives any Martial artist a more 3-dimensional view of this fighting system. I am certainly going to purchase his 2nd book "Advanced Bowie Techniques"!
