Fantasitc book on tracking. Easy to read and understand, entertaining stories and personal experiences and very informative. It has illustrations, not photographs which some may find disappointing, but I didn't think it was a problem at all. Read full review

Review: Tom Brown's Field Guide to Nature Observation and Tracking

User Review  - Cathy - Goodreads

Certainly taking nature observation to the next level. The author is honest in his repeated comments that "dirt time" is the only way to go. Interesting to read, but I will also be honest and say that I don't want to devote as much time as it will take to be as good as he is. Read full review
