Dr. Saxton Pope (1875 - 1926) was an American surgeon, teacher, author and outdoorsman.

In 1911, Ishi, the last Yahi Indian or primitive Native American, was captured in Oroville, California; and was brought to the University of California’s Museum of Anthropology as a ward. There, Dr. Pope became the personal physician for Ishi, and was immediately intrigued by the Yahi ways. They became wonderful friends and Pope learned to enjoy Ishi's many outdoor talents. Pope was so complimentary of Ishi's archery tackle and especially his craftsmanship that he claimed "probably better ones have never been made anywhere".

Dr. Pope went on to write many books about archery and ways to make and hunt with the bow and arrow, including Yahi Archery, first published in 1918.

Yahi Archery describes the very interesting methods of the Yahi for the manufacture of the implements of archery, and their style of shooting. The book presents 17 full-page plates of many amazing photos about Ishi and his archery.
