my husband, a symbolical name used in Hos. 2:16 (See BAALI.)
Like all other archers, if ishi missed a shot he always had a good excuse.
The length of an arrow, over all, was estimated by ishi in this manner.
ishi used to tell me of his laughable experiences with coyotes.
Not only could ishi call the animals, but he understood their language.
I learned to love ishi as a brother, and he looked upon me as one of his people.
Had she beheaded every rose and old ishi in the bargain I would have smiled, for something in me was being satisfied.
Apparently, from ishi's description, it took quite a time to wear down and slay the animal.
According to ishi, a bow left strung or standing in an upright position, gets tired and sweats.
In fledging arrows ishi used eagle, buzzard, hawk or flicker feathers.
After all was dry and firm, ishi took the arrow and beat it gently across his palm so that the feathers spread out nicely.
