The BAREBOW! BOOK:
of the FIVE, NATIVE, NORTH AMERICAN
BAREBOW! Goes E-Book!
December 1, 2012
Dear friends of BAREBOW!,
I am pleased to announce that I have just finished re-publishing my award-winning book, BAREBOW!, as a seven-volume, e-Book series. All seven volumes are now up and available for sale — at $3.99 each — in both AMAZON's Kindle Bookstore and BARNES & NOBLE's Nook Bookstore. The complete digital series now costs only $27.93, versus the $95 price of the standard hardcover edition. An application is available from APPLE that will permit the downloading of these electronic books (from AMAZON only) to an i-Pad, as well.
Because the original hardcover weighs 9 1/4 pounds, it never lent itself to bedtime reading, or to taking with you on an airplane, or up into your hunting treestand. Now the book can be downloaded, at little expense — in seven different segments — to light, portable, reading devices that can be taken with you anywhere you travel.
Volume One is titled The BAREBOW! DEER BOOK and contains all 18 stories, plus all of the stunning art work (both color and black-and-white) by Hayden and Dallen Lambson, found in the original five DEER chapters of BAREBOW! Those chapters are titled, "MULE DEER", "COLUMBIA BLACKTAIL DEER", "WHITETAIL DEER", "SITKA BLACKTAIL DEER", and "COUES' WHITETAIL DEER". In addition, you will find here the same comprehensive, taxonomic and biological information on each species and subspecies which made the parent book an encyclopedic reference on all North American big game.
Books Two through Seven are titled, "The BAREBOW! ELK BOOK," "The BAREBOW! BEAR BOOK," "The BAREBOW! SHEEP BOOK," "The BAREBOW! CARIBOU BOOK," "The BAREBOW! MOOSE BOOK," and "The BAREBOW! BOOK of the FIVE, NATIVE, NORTH AMERICAN BIG-GAME 'EXOTICS'." (The final volume presents all 17 stories — plus the artwork, taxonomic material, range/distribution maps, etc. — from the five original chapters on Bison, Pronghorn Antelope, Cougar, Rocky Mountain Goat, and Muskox.)
A heads-up to you hunters who happen to be ELK enthusiasts: Volume Two, The BAREBOW! ELK BOOK, contains three, additional, brand-new elk stories, written since the original work came out, and not yet published anywhere else. It also contains several new elk drawings by Dallen Lambson that were not published in the hardcover editions.
All the books are designed to appeal to the hunter and non-hunter alike. For that reason, they contain no "hero photos" of the author with any of his trophies at the kill-sites. That omission, however, is more than compensated for by the remarkable and abundant wildlife art of wildlife artists Hayden and Dallen Lambson, a highly-revered father/son team from Pocatello, Idaho.
If you know someone who thoroughly enjoys being an armchair adventurer, with literature that never puts you to sleep, nor exposes you personally to the hazards of setting foot in the wilderness, then the seven volumes in this exciting e-Book series just might make the perfect Christmas gift! Now, finally, BAREBOW! becomes affordable for virtually everyone.
