“Tamarack Song’s decades of authentic experience living close to the land and guiding others in their quests for meaningful relationship with the natural world infuse his writing and teaching style. Through the traditional teaching methods of stories and direct personal experience, Entering The Mind of the Tracker creates a tremendous opportunity for anyone interested in exploring humankind’s natural roots. As a professional wildlife tracker, photographer, and outdoor educator, I am grateful for the insight and energy that Tamarack’s stories bring to these endeavors. ” (David Moskowitz, author of Wolves in the Land of Salmon and Wildlife of the Pacific Northwest)
“This book is a tool that will guide and inspire you to gain the experience necessary to improve your tracking ability...By exploring the intricacies of the animal world and learning about the teachings of the forest — its ghosts, the invisible trails — through its myriad of stories, you will come closer to enabling yourself, not only in tracking, but in finding the path to yourself as well.” (Awareness Magazine, July 2013)
“No nature collection should be without this in-depth survey, which focuses on developing intuitive tracking talents. From stories from the trail to applying tracking skills as a metaphor for conscious living, this is an outstanding survey highly recommended for any collection strong in natural history, new age readings, and Native practices, alike!” (Midwest Book Review, July 2013)
“Song describes how to become one with many creatures, and includes tips on demystifying canine tracks whether from coyote, fox, wolf or dog. He also has sound, safe advice for educators, naturalists and tracking instructors. Most of us may never be inclined to track in the wild, but we can apply Song’s intuitive techniques to finding ourselves and our place in nature.” (Nexus Reviews, October 2013)
“Entering the Mind of the Tracker points to the wisdom of asking questions rather than having answers.” (Paul Rezendes, author of The Wild Within and Tracking and the Art of Seeing)
“Real stories from the real world, simple and complex at the same time, and well worth pondering!” (Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature and Earth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet)
“Tracking has become a left-brained skill, involving ruler, track analysis, and GPS to know an animal from its tracks. In Entering the Mind of the Tracker, Tamarack Song offers an intuitive, Zen-like alternative, suggesting that we don’t need to learn to track any more than a Wolf needs to be reminded that he is a hunter. Tracking is in our nature. Whether you are an experienced tracker seeking to improve your ability or a novice intimidated by the left-brained science of conventional tracking, this book opens up exciting opportunities to connect with the story of the land.” (Thomas J. Elpel, author of Botany in a Day and founder of Hollowtop Outdoor Primitive School)
“Entering the Mind of the Tracker is one of those rare works that captures the essence of nature by exploring its tiniest (and most profound) nuances. Tamarack Song has written what will help achieve one of the most important needs of human beings today--reconnecting with the Earth.” (Les Stroud, star of the hit TV show Survivorman and author of Survive! Essential Skills and Tactics)
“A deeply moving book, wonderfully written; brings home the tremendous beauty of depth perception of the natural world and the exquisite intelligence and sensitivity of our kin--the Wolves. It opens up the possibility for us to read the world around us through the sense perception born within us, and opens up the potential for us to reinhabit the world.” (Stephen Harrod Buhner, author of The Secret Teachings of Plants and Ensouling Language)
“Entering the Mind of the Tracker beautifully demonstrates that outdoor skills are best learned through a deep understanding of environment. Tamarack Song imparts knowledge in a way that is both lyrical and philosophical.” (Tristan Gooley, expedition leader, author of The Natural Navigator, and the only living person to ha)
“I couldn’t put this book down. Tamarack is not telling us the mere mundanities of tracking--he’s showing us a complete communication system that is largely unknown to modern man. Beginning trackers and generalists will love this window into the world of hidden knowledge, and experts will find these stories helpful, insightful, inspiring.” (Christopher Nyerges, primitive skills instructor, author of How to Survive Anywhere, and former edit)
“To track is to live the life of the quarry--mentally, spiritually, and physically. Very few trackers ever reach this level of mastery. Entering the Mind of the Tracker will help you discover the salient truths known by those few, like Tamarack, who have shadowed all living things. Here is a window to the beautiful and foundational knowledge provided by a lifetime of tutelage at the feet of Mother Nature.” (Ty Cunningham, founder and tracking historian of the International Society of Professional Trackers)
“When a human being has passion for wild places, / And pauses, comprehending the spaces around, / Then the tiny notice of a bent twig graces / All the story inside that certain spot of ground. / Such is the inner passion of Tamarack Song, / His stories reflecting the seeing parts of his days / That are so large and informing to us who long/For the revelation of observation’s ways.” (Larry Dean Olsen, author of Outdoor Survival Skills, progenitor of wilderness therapy, and founder o)
“He writes like a storyteller, mindful of the pictures which the sound and combinations of his words create. The sounds, smells, and sights of the northern Wisconsin woods come to life as we read. He tells us that tracking is a metaphor for conscious living, and then he shows us what that means. More than just a book, this is a world that readers can disappear into over and over again. ” (Anna Jedrziewski, Inannaworks.com, May 2013)
“In his latest book, Entering the Mind of the Tracker, Tamarack shares an ancient and vital human process. Revealing a rare and outstanding knowledge of—and connection to—place, this personal story can help people in love with tracking gain helpful insight into the world of intuition and the potential for the journey into traditional ecological knowledge.” (Jon Young, founder of Wilderness Awareness School, author of What the Robin Knows and Coyote's Guide)
“Come in from the cold and warm your heart by the fire of tradition. Master tracker and storyteller Tamarack Song shares the stories and wisdom of a life spent in search of the Ancestral Self. It is trailcraft for the soul.” (Steve Watts, Aboriginal Studies Program, Schiele Museum of Natural History; and president of the Soc)
“Entering the Mind of the Tracker is a marvelous book written by a master storyteller and tracker. Through its powerful and poignant stories you will feel absorbed in the world and spirit of Nature.” (Joseph Cornell, founder of the Sharing Nature Foundation and author of Sharing Nature with Children)
“Brilliant! So fresh, so enticing, even seasoned trackers will be blown wide open, the novice will be jump-started years ahead, and teachers and guides will rejoice! Tamarack Song melds ancient wisdom with modern knowledge and offers us a fun, full, fantastic learning experience.” (Robin Blankenship, founder of Earth Knack Primitive Skills School and author of Earth Knack: Stone A)
“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.” (Branches of Light, June 2013)

No measurements, photographs or gait descriptions and yet highly valuable for me as a professional tracker.
Through stories Tamarack Song shares his insights into the lives of the animals he was tracking.
The degree of his observation-, as well as his storytelling skills reminds me of world famous naturalists and trackers like Ellsworth Jaeger or Jim Corbett.
It's so much fun to read a story before I go to bed instead of a Field Guide and still learn a lot about tracking.
You could read it as beautiful goodnight stories to your kids or as a the highly precise first hand report of an extraordinary experienced man and tracker.
No matter if you are tracking animals or not this book is worth every penny.
Perhaps sometimes I was missing "the point", which lead me to having trouble keeping my attention through one or two of the stories.
I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 only because 5 meaning I can not imagine beyond.
Great book, I recommend it to everyone interested in tracking as well as animal stories.
Your English should be quite solid.

I gave it two stars because he does say some important and good things about surrender. However, I've been around a long while and frankly there are things I know that clash with what TS teaches, little mistakes he drops into his conversation in the book that indicate he is clueless about a few vital things a spiritual teacher needs to know. I'll just give one small example because he is a work in progress like all of us and one supposes he will grow and learn like all of us and I do not wish to make a big deal out of it. He refers to the body as a "machine." It is nowhere near to being a machine. That is a deep insult on a sacred entity without which we wouldn't be able to be here on Earth. Also, he mentions love very little -- too little for the level he claims to be on. In life, LOVE is both the message you are carrying and the road on which you travel. To lose sight of that is to lose sight of the truth, and then you have lost yourself. The best trackers know who they are.
I would not recommend the book, although there are a few (too few) exercises in it, some of which are written badly so there are questions about what to actually do. Other exercises are fine but can be found in other places. Overall, I feel this book is more an offering of ego than of love, yet I do applaud TS's intentions, whose end result, I'm sure, has been helpful to some people..
He also tends to cut down any tracking style other than what he thinks is correct. He states at one time that scientific tracking cannot answer the same questions his intuitive tracking does. Yet the questions he poses can all be answered in the scientific method and be known to be correct instead of just what comes from the imagination. Intuitive tracking has its place and often can help a person out when their scientific tracking skills are not up to the task, but it is not more important nor more correct than scientific tracking.
Also, not all human brains work the same. Talk with an engineer, a sculpture, a Veterinarian with an open mind and you will often see they simply think differently than each other. There is not a wrong way or a right way, we each fill in the holes left by the other way of thinking. We NEED these differences to survive. Mocking these differences shows a lack of understanding. Some people just can not think like an artist, but the way they do think can save lives and create worlds different than the artist's mind can. Not better, not worse, just different.
Now those of us who do live with the wilds tend to not have the greatest of people skills. I certainly am a good example of this. So I often give those of us a break simply because the best teachers are often the ones that lack the basics in human interaction skills. After all, if we worked well with all people we probably wouldn't go out into the wilderness so much. However, how this author writes tends to lead me to believe that he thinks a bit too highly of himself, a danger many guru type people fall into. This may not be the case in real life, but that is how his writings comes across.
Having said that, if you cut out the ego stroking part of the book (which is about 2/3 of it) there is wisdom here. 3 stars because there may be people out there who think tracking is just looking at a track and thinking that's all there can be to tracking. For those people, this book can be very basic in helping them to open up a new way of looking at the sign all energy leaves behind.
