The wilderness expert and outdoor tracker describes sixteen of his adventures in the wilderness--from the race against time to find a lost diabetic child to the search for a tiger loose in the New Jersey woods.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

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.

Not as bad as the other reviews say... 24. Dezember 2004
Von Mark - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
First full disclosure...this was the first book I've read by Tom Brown, after the title caught my eye in the bookstore. Also, after initially starting it, I did the standard Internet search to find out who he was and what he was about.
The book is a quick easy read and the subject is fascinating. I give it only 4 instead of 5 stars, because the writing is somewhat stilted. I don't fault him some of the redundancy, because I think he is intentionally trying to hammer some key points in his philosophy.

I think Tom Brown is approaching twilight time in his life, and no doubt he recognizes that. I think he is trying to make peace with some events in his past life. Not to ruin the book, but every story does not end with him carrying out a lost child on his shoulders to the adulation of the town or with him leading out an escaped fugitive in chains.

This book does not smack of "smug arrogance and bravado" that some of the other reviewers would lead you to believe...just the opposite, Tom Brown gives full disclosure concerning some of his mistakes and regrets from the various cases described in the book, he always gives full credit to his tracker students, and he approaches everything in the book: the wilderness, the unfortunate circumstances of other people, with respect and reverence.

I also find it ridiculous that some of the other reviewers criticized the fact that this book "wouldn't teach them how to track." Read the other books he's written, or attend his tracking school up north. If he took time in the book to describe "how he does it" it would probably take several pages and destroy the continuity of the story.
I can't see how anyone with a pulse would not enjoy this book. Enjoyable read. I see myself reading more of his books.

Disappointing 30. Dezember 2003
Von Shadow Raven - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
First off, I am a huge fan of Tom Brown and have the utmost respect for him. I have been reading and re-reading all his books for the past 17 years. And I will continue to do so.
But I found myself asking "Did Tom really write this?". The stories themselves are very interesting. But I felt like I was reading each story 3 times do to the redundancy. But what got to me most was the arrogance that this book seems to be wrapped in. I fully appreciate Toms skills and the emotional pains he has had to go through. But there are doctors, firemen, social workers and countless others that have to endure the emotional trauma of watching people suffer through life and die right before them day after day at their jobs. Yet they are not out pounding that fact home in books in this 'oh woe is me' fashion.
If you have not read a Tom Brown book before don't start with this one. Toms books, skills and teachings are a tremendous value. But starting with this book will turn you away from all he has to offer.

Case Files of the Tracker 17. Dezember 2003
Von David Reger - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I used to be a very enthusiastic Tom Brown fan, having read most of his earlier auto-bios and over half the field guides. I'm a backpacker and half-fast tracker also. Tom knows his stuff. HOWEVER, Case Files reads like something from "Gung-ho" magazine written by someone from The National Enquirer. After the first two chapters, I was so disgusted I threw his book at the wall and vowed to quit recommending him to friends. Go with the early books: The Tracker etc. But avoid Case Files unless you're a wannabe mercenary who's emotionally retarded.

inside a tracking case 9. Januar 2008
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
No other book quite catches the thoughts and feelings inside a tracking case for a lost child or on the trail of an aging escaped lion. Sad and compelling, it allows you to feel the fear and anguish of a father searching for a lost child the same age as his own. And it gives insight to the needless killing of an arthritic circus animal too tired to hunt but a fine target for overprotective local law enforcement.

Von Bradley Hall - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is either a set of awe-inspiring adventure stories by and about a hero with spiritually transcendental superpowers...
...or it is a collection of juvenile fantasies.

Which is it? That is for you, the reader, to decide.

If you like, you can rock out to every page. Like the books of Carlos Castaneda, these stories can be huge fun to read, and like Castaneda they talk about the adventures of a man who learned a kind of wizardry from a native american shaman (whose existence cannot be confirmed) as he battles foes and rescues the vulnerable in the setting of the great outdoors.

On the other hand, if you wish you can put the book down after reading a few pages, with full confidence that you know what the rest of the book has in store. At every moment, with every step and every thought, the author trembles in awe at his own awesomeness. This awe-struck tone never varies. No sense of humor seeps in, at least not that I could see.

One particularly goofy chapter is "Cougar Canyon." This chapter tells the story of Tom and his team of trackers flying from New Jersey to Colorado to search for a boy who went missing 11 days before. They spend one day tracking him, write a report saying that he is probably dead, and fly home. Wow. Big contribution. Brilliant conclusion. But wait! Tom Brown "knew" that was the conclusion from the moment he touched the boy's footprint, knew it psychically! Tom Brown has awesome superpowers.

So, this can be a terrifically fun read. I would have loved it at age 15. Now, though, all I see is some liar who never left middle school, telling comic book stories about himself over and over.

[I have noticed that the author's supporters tend to respond to low reviews of this book by citing Tom Brown's resume. I don't see how his resume convinces anyone that Tom Brown didn't just make up the stuff in this book. So, please let's not hear that response to my review.]
