Case Files of the Trackerby Tom Brown
Synopses & Reviews
There is no greater tracker in America than Tom Brown. His intimate knowledge of the natural environment, by sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch, has made him renowned as a detective of the outdoors. For decades he has been called upon to find missing children, escaped animals, dangerous criminals—anything that can walk, crawl, or lope through the wilderness. His hunting expertise, and his call to find harmony in nature, have been chronicled in several of his books including The Tracker and Awakening Spirits.
Now, in Case Files of the Tracker, Tom Brown reveals sixteen of his adventures for the first time, including:
· A desperate race to reach a diabetic child before he suffers from insulin shock
· The treacherous struggle to capture an armed convict that left Tom with a bullet in his back
· His Tracking Teams pursuit of a tiger on the loose in the wilds of New Jersey
"A practitioner of a skill that faded away with the frontier in this country"("People") shares vivid accounts of his most fascinating cases as an outdoorsdetective.
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 no clues
His astonishing determination that the cause of a police officer's death was not a suicide, but in fact, a murder!
