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.
A good tracking book gets you into the spirit of the animal that made the track.
Tom calls himself a "coyote teacher", and is somewhat incomprehensible at times, and at other times is strikingly lucid, with a great message.
The tips on "Nature Observation" in this field guide are unsurpassed by any other tracking book I know.
My husband is a lifelong hunter so I worried that this would be old news....but he uses it to check out different kinds of tracks around our farm.Published 8 days ago by J. Mouser

I love the way it is written. It is a good book. I didn't finish it yet, but it is always in the back of my mind, which means it is good.Published 12 months ago by Christian Pukala
The Sacred Silence is such an important part of tracking. Humans cast concentric rings deep into the forest, when they enter it. Read morePublished 18 months ago by CG
