I found this book to be a great source of information on arrowheads and knives. His hypothesis on the difference between arrowheads and knives makes sense.Filled with great photos. I would reccomend this book to the novice and experienced collector alike. Many photos you won't see in the Overstreet guide and other publications.

I chose this rating because the book is accurate, it covers a very wide variety and time span of Native American knives. It is very detailed in its descriptions and pictures.I would recommend this book to collectors of Native American artifacts it shows that not every object made of stone with a point on it is an arrow head for one and helps with identification of those items.The only thing that I wish they would have done different or added to the book would be to use some color photos.

This is a great resource for identifying different types of Indian knives. I was looking for specific South Carolina Indian finds, so there was limited information; however, I was still able to identify many types of knives.
