New. 0425099660 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. Tom 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 Benicio del Toro. In 1978, Tom founded the Tracker School in the New Jersey Pine Barrens where he offers classes about wilderness survival and environmental protection.
Since I haven't hunted in 30 years, I thought I would refresh my memory on game tracking. Since this book got such good reviews on Amazon, I thought this would be a good place to start. My mistake. This book is written for naturalist and not for hunters. I think he really goes over the edge on page 102, when he suggests wearing nothing but a "loincloth or shorts and a snug top" and no shoes when stalking. In my backyard maybe, but not in the California wilderness.
Of the several books I bought on tracking, the best was "The SAS Guide to Tracking" by Bob Carss.
Another EXCELLENT book that everyone who goes beyond their driveway should have is "The SAS Survival Guide" by John Wiseman. This book measures 3.25" x 4.75" and contains over 380 pages and covers everything from First Aid, building shelter, making fires, trapping and survival.. This book is a "must" carry.
