Tom Brown, Jr. began to learn hunting and tracking at the age of eight under the tutelage of an Apache elder, medicine man, and scout in Toms River, New Jersey, and is the author of 16 books on nature. Recently, he was the technical advisor on The Hunted, a major motion picture starring Tommy Lee Jones and Benecio Del Toro. In 1978, Tom founded the Tracker School in the New Jersey Pine Barrens where he offers more than 25 classes about wilderness survival and environmental protection.

His very first book was his best, but this is a good guide. I wasn't disappointed, but I also wasn't overwhelmed with the quality.
A good book for your library.

I love Mr. Tom Brown Jr and I have been a big fan of his for a long time but this particular book I don't recommend. The Wilderness edition is a must have.Published 12 months ago by Matt. L
I have previously read his other books and this one is just as good. Its not a doomsday book but does give you good information to use during emergency situations.Published 13 months ago by Allison R. Coullietteburk
