"Knife & Tomahawk Throwing helps keep alive these traditional arts of the old West. In these pages, you will learn about the fundamentals of the sport and gain insight into some of the greatest professional knife throwers–the men who paved the way for the modern day thrower." — Bobby Branton, President of the American Knife Thrower's Alliance (AKTA)
Harry McEvoy, the foremost expert in the field of tomahawk and knife throwing and best-selling author of Knife Throwing: A Practical Guide, provides us with an exciting, in-depth look at the popular sport of weapon throwing.
Meet the men who throw flaming knives at lovely ladies on a spinning target—and not scorch a hair; learn about the legendary "Skeeter" Vaughan, whose record-breaking throw saved the lives of hundreds of U.S. servicemen during World War II; and witness the courage of Tony Cascarella, who brought down a 275-pound wild boar with only three Bowie-Axe throwing knives.
In addition, this book will clearly show you the skills involved in knife and tomahawk throwing—skills all the professionals first mastered before attempting the daring feats required when performing the "impalement arts." Also presented is an interesting history of throwing-knives, from the earliest times, through the development of the European daggers, and up to the knives used during the Vietnam War. Furthermore, you'll learn about many of the other throwing weapons of the world, including the martial arts weapons used by the Japanese ninja, and the deadly boomerangs of the Australian aborigines.
Concisely written and illustrated with more than 50 photographs—including many of the "greats" in action—Knife and Tomahawk Throwing is a must for anyone interested in these fascinating sports.

The Fine Points of Knife Throwing
How to Build Targets

British Mark IV Tank. Fletcher. British Mark IV Tank. Fletcher.

It's All a Bit Heath Robinson: Re-inventing the First World War. Gosling. It's All a Bit Heath Robinson: Re-inventing the First World War. Gosling.

Heath Robinson is one of the most famous British inventors of all time. This book pays tribute to his quirky take on World War I.
Heath Robinson remains one of Britain’s most famous inventors, inspiring the phrase "it’s all a bit Heath Robinson", describing any implausible and unnecessarily complex contraption. He is also well-known in the United States where the phrase means any temporary fix. He was born in London and his first talent was illustrating and cartoons. But it was his love of inventing that was to win him fame and during World War I he was to produce some of the quirkiest cartoons for some of the strangest weapons ever thought of. From his Kaiser's campaigning car to his idea for Cat-moo-flage to protect civilians from air raids, his cartoons are a fantastical take on the technology of World War I. Sadly, his inventions were rejected by the Inventions Board, but he was loved by the public and remains a legendary figure to this day. This is the first book to bring his World War I cartoons together. A beautiful gift book that will delight any World War I enthusiast.

Gunpowder: Alchemy, Bombards, and Pyrotechnics: The History Of The Explosive That Changed The World. Kelly Gunpowder: Alchemy, Bombards, and Pyrotechnics: The History Of The Explosive That Changed The World. Kelly

When Chinese alchemists fashioned the first manmade explosion sometime during the tenth century, no one could have foreseen its full revolutionary potential. Invented to frighten evil spirits rather than fuel guns or bombs-neither of which had been thought of yet-their simple mixture of saltpeter, sulfur, and charcoal went on to make the modern world possible. As word of its explosive properties spread from Asia to Europe, from pyrotechnics to battleships, it paved the way for Western exploration, hastened the end of feudalism and the rise of the nation state, and greased the wheels of the Industrial Revolution.With dramatic immediacy, novelist and journalist Jack Kelly conveys both the distant time in which the "devil's distillate" rose to conquer the world, and brings to rousing life the eclectic cast of characters who played a role in its epic story, including Michelangelo, Edward III, Vasco da Gama, Cortez, Guy Fawkes, Alfred Nobel, and E.I. DuPont. A must-read for history fans and military buffs alike, Gunpowder brings together a rich terrain of cultures and technological innovations with authoritative research and swashbuckling style.

Van Diemen's Women. Kavanagh, Snowden Van Diemen's Women. Kavanagh, Snowden

On 2 September 1845, the convict ship Tasmania left Kingstown Harbour for Van Diemen’s Land with 138 female convicts and their 35 children. On 3 December, the ship arrived into Hobart Town. While this book looks at the lives of all the women aboard, it focuses on two women in particular: Eliza Davis, who was transported from Wicklow Gaol for life for infanticide, having had her sentence commuted from death, and Margaret Butler, sentenced to seven years’ transportation for stealing potatoes in Carlow. Using original records, this study reveals the reality of transportation, together with the legacy left by these women in Tasmania and beyond, and shows that perhaps, for some, this Draconian punishment was, in fact, a life-saving measure.
