Don Cooper did an excellent job of describing Ab Taylor's method of teaching tracking. The book incorporates Ab's unique style and stories while conveying all the important points. Anyone interested in learning about what one needs to know about tracking people, should read this book. I particularly liked the chapter on tracking the evader.

SAR Trackers Bible

This book the "Fundamentals of Mantracking: A Step-By-Step Method" by Ab Taylor and Donald Cooper is one of the go to manual for Search and Rescue (SAR) trackers and is currently in its second edition. Ab Taylor is a United States Border Patrol veteran of 30+ years and considered one of the fathers of SAR trackers along with Jack Kearney (author of " Tracking: A Blueprint for Learning How") and Roland Robbins (author of "Mantracking: Introduction to the Step-By-Step Method"). This book is a required addition to the visual trackers library whether you track lost personnel, study animals, pursue fugitives or hunt insurgents. This book provides detailed information on the basics of visual tracking and briefly covers advanced information on aging, tracking strategy and counter-tracking. The information presented in this manual as it pertains to visual tracking is relatively spot on; with some minor modifications most of the techniques described in this manual can be adapted to other tracking disciplines. In one of the posted reviews, one reviewer complained about the tongue-in-cheek humor used in this manual. I did not find this humor distracting to the overall manual and found it to be quite entertaining. Overall, I found this manual easy to understand and incorporate into my visual tracking regime of training.
