Publisher Comments:

andldquo;Jon Young knows birds, and you will too after reading his marvelous book. Youandrsquo;ll discover a universal bird language that will speak to you wherever you go outdoors. Every nature lover should read this book.andrdquo;andmdash;Joseph Cornell, author of Sharing Nature with Children and John Muir: My Life with Nature

A lifelong birder, tracker, and naturalist, Jon Young is guided by three basic premises: the robin, junco, and other songbirds know everything important about their environment, be it backyard or forest; by tuning in to their vocalizations and behavior, we can acquire much of this wisdom for our own pleasure and benefit; and the birdsandrsquo; companion calls and warning alarms are just as important as their songs. Deep bird language is an ancient discipline, perfected by Native peoples the world over, and science is finally catching up. This groundbreaking book unites the indigenous knowledge, the latest research, and the authorandrsquo;s own experience of four decades in the field to lead us toward a deeper connection to the animals and, in the end, a deeper connection to ourselves.

andldquo;Jon Young is one of the heroes of the new nature movement . . . This elegant book will deepen the kinship between humans and other species. It decodes our common language.andrdquo;andmdash;Richard Louv, author of The Nature Principle and Last Child in the Woods

andldquo;A brilliant work, born of a lifetime of listening, teaching, and tracking what really matters . . . Jon Youngandrsquo;s work replenishes our humanity.andrdquo;andmdash;David Abram, author of Becoming Animal and The Spell of the Sensuous

Synopsis:

How understanding bird language and behavior can help us to see more wildlife.

Synopsis:

Utilizing the ancient lore of Native Americans, Tom Brown passes on a timeless tradition that connects humankind to Earth. This unique volume teaches us the basics of sight, smell, and taste; it shows us how to become one with nature, and how to receive all the signs and signals of the multitude of living creatures with whom we share the beauty and bounty of the wilderness.

* How to restore to our senses all the amazing powers stolen away by civilization

* How to move as silently as the Native American scouts

* How to spot and identify the tracks of a vast variety of animals

* How to find humas lost in the wilderness

About the Author

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, and 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 Benecio Del Toro.   In 1978, Tom founded the Tracker School in the New Jersey Pine Barrens where he offers more than 25 classes about wilderness survival and environmental protection.
