Tracking can be a spiritual development process, among some indigenous peoples.  There are several writers on tracking, from Tom Brown, Jr., to Paul Rezendes, to Charles Worsham.  OK.  It's one thing to know the skills, and quite another to write well about them.  This author's...

schema:description"Drawing from his years of surviving in the wild, apprenticing to native elders, and living with a family of wolves, Tamarack reveals how to achieve a level of perception like that of aboriginal trackers by becoming one with the animal you are tracking, whether Fox, Deer, Coyote, or Cougar. Sharing his innermost thoughts while following track and sign, the book's adventures merge technical tracking methods with skills such as shadowing and envisioning, while demonstrating animal-reading skills considered outside the human realm. The author explains how to expand your awareness - to learn from nature by becoming nature - and tap into the intuitive tracking consciousness each of us has inherited from our Paleolithic ancestors."@en

schema:description"Through his stories from the trail, Tamarack shows the art of tracking not simply as a skill for hunters and naturalists but as a metaphor for conscious living. By exploring the intricacies of the natural world, we explore not only our connections to the world around us but also our internal landscapes. We learn to better express ourselves and listen, meet our needs and help others. Intuitive tracking provides a path to finding ourselves, becoming one with all life, and restoring humanity's place in the Great Hoop of Life. With a foreword by one of the legendary Shadow Wolves Bryan Nez introducing this collection of real life tracking stories, the book will bring out the tracker in you."--pub. desc."@en
