This full-color, hardcover book features 436 photos of 110 carved and engraved powder horns, specifically chosen to reflect the magnificent variety of subjects and the artistic range of the individual carver. Along with the flintlock musket or rifle, the powder horn was essential to the American colonist's survival in a wild and untamed wilderness.
