True stories from a practitioner of a skill that faded away with the frontier in this country. Renowned wilderness expert & tracker trained by an Apache elder talks about 16 of his most incredible adventures for the first time.
From the remote Pine Barrens of New Jersey to the wilds of Wyoming, Tom Brown has earned the mantle of America's Greatest Tracker--someone who, with the help of an Apache elder, has developed his senses to such a degree that he can "read" the environment around him in ways that seem almost magical.
Now, for the first time, he shares vivid accounts of his most fascinating cases as an outdoors detective, including:
* The search for a diabetic child before he goes into insulin shock
* The struggle to apprehend an armed criminal who put a bullet in his back
* The hunt for a tiger loose in the New Jersey wilderness
* The incredible search for a missing teenager where the police had turned up
* His astonishing determination that the cause of a police officer's death was
not a suicide, but in fact, a murder!
* and more
