Description

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
