Publisher's Summary

Crimson Arrows: A Bowhunting Odyssey is narrated from the heart and soul of a bowhunter. Spanning three decades of his adventures, Eyad Yehyawi takes you through the emotions, heartbreaks, and successes from his earliest years in Iowa, to physically and psychologically challenging backcountry hunts in Alaska and Canada, to a breathtaking African safari. Every setback and missed opportunity is revealed, along with the rewards earned through hard work and perseverance. Through these 27 stories, Eyad defines his passion for the outdoors, including the disappointments and mishaps, sleepless nights, and tears, and a few instances where death comes calling. 

With intense descriptions of his surroundings, animal behavior, and imposing weather conditions, Eyad engages all of your senses as you share his adventures. Whether you long for giant whitetails and spring gobblers, are passionate to pursue mountain goats and moose in Alaska, dream of wading across the tundra for caribou, hope to stalk musk oxen in the Arctic, or aspire to trail a horse-killing cougar in the mountains of Alberta, you’ll find stories here to inspire you. 

Praise for Crimson Arrows: A Bowhunting Odyssey:

"A heartfelt exploration of youth and growth through the lens of a hunter. The first thing one notices about Yehyawi’s writing is the sincerity; each story hums with personal touches and genuine emotion. He is able to dig through his memories, some from decades in the past, and pluck out striking moments of authenticity. It is one thing to recall and connect seminal events in one’s life, it is quite another to find wisdom in those experiences. Yehyawi writes with an original voice all his own that is both poetic and confident, in an emotive collection of adventure and personal exploration." (Self-Publishing Review, ★★★★½)

Pretty good listen

Pretty good, but sometimes feels a little repetitive. I listened to while driving, so maybe i was not paying as much attention to the book

Great Storytelling!

Wow! Twenty-five years of great adventures with a bow and arrow.

Story-telling style that put me right beside you... and always a "life lesson" drawn from the experience.

Will recommend to friends!

Taking Me to the Woods

This was my first audible book but it won't be the last. What a great experience and I could not have picked a better book. The reader makes the stories come to life. The author has captured the essence of hunting, from the highs to the lows, from quick hunts to grueling adventures ending in both filled tags and empty pockets. WOW!
I've been blessed to have gone on many similar hunts and this book not only takes me on Mr. Yehyawi's hunts but brings back memories of my own hunt. I'm sure many drivers who pass me wonder why I have such a big smile on my face as I drive down the road listening to "Crimson Arrows".
Without spoiling the audible book for the rest of the readers, let me just say that the listeners will be treated to more than just a reader reciting the adventures.
Well done. Now what about a sequel?
Thanks and I appreciate the awesome adventures and excellent reading.

Excellent

Crimson Arrows is written from the heart with vivid prose. Highlighting the learning curve and lessons a passionate Bowhunter goes through on the path of a pursuit of adventure and quality time afield. Eyads writing style expresses a detail not often seen today. I felt I was along side for each high and low. Well done.

Well written & well narrated! Really pulls you in!

Really enjoyed this audiobook. The writing is very descriptive. It creates such rich imagery for each adventure and lets you share in the drama of the hunt. It's also surprisingly funny at times... actually laughed out loud at one point while listening in my car. More than anything else, though, it highlights the best aspects of bowhunting that are often hard to describe...the friendships built, the lessons of both successes & defeats, the ethics of bowhunting...all find their way into the stories again and again. The narrator's voice is just perfect for such a series of adventure stories, making the drama, humor, disappointment, and elation all come to life. This was the perfect audiobook for a long road trip that took me across the Midwest recently. I suspect it will be a welcome listen for many hunters during their early morning drive out to some distant tree stand. Makes you get excited for the fall!
