It’s a simple fact: Guns are part of America. Guns enabled the Pilgrims to stay in the New World. The first shots of the American Revolution were fired when British troops tried to seize Colonists’ guns, powder and shot. America’s Industrial Age was spurred by gunmakers and the need to better equip soldiers. The Wild West was settled by ranchers, miners, traders, fur trappers and farmers, whose guns fed and protected them and their families. America and firearms literally grew up together, but now some people only equate guns with crime and violence. Gun control has become a polarizing political issue, and misinformation about firearms is spreading, intentionally and unintentionally, far and wide. Now three experts are tackling the subject in a series of highly accessible books that explores the realities of firearms and debunks common misunderstandings. The books are non-political, and information is delivered in an easy-to-understand, conversational style. The Gun Book for Boys is the first in the series, and it is intended for boys (and girls) ages 12 – 16 who are interested in guns and shooting, but who have no family members to teach them. Examples and anecdotes emphasize safety and proper usage, and the book defines terms, provides hands-on advice about using, maintaining and safely storing guns, debunks myths, delves into history, and explains topics ranging from target shooting to hunting to military sniping. Everything is thoroughly illustrated and presented in easily managed portions that can be read in series or individually. The book also has an index, suggestions for other “must-have” gun books and a comprehensive bibliography.
