    Donelan... Tracks in the 'REAL WORLD' not the 'SPIRIT WORLD'!

    David Scott-Donelan with this fascinating book brings his hard learned lessons of aggressive mantracking as he used in the counter-insurgency bush wars of Rhodesia and South Africa. His techniques were gleaned from the elite units (Rhodesian SAS, Selous Scouts, and South African Recces) he served with and instructed in the craft of combat tracking. He does not conjure up spirits from the spirit world to interpret spoor but uses techniques of observation and reduction, with a little common sense. His book covers all fundamentals of mantracking on up to equipment selection, multiple team operations, and follow-up methods to list but a few. Donelan has also taken these tried and proven techniques and has slightly modified them for use in law enforcement employment; using tracking as a tool to apprehend fleeing suspects or escapees to its use and employment in a search and rescue role. All I can say is if you are to own one book on tactical / combat mantracking this is the book, with its 30 years plus of experience between the covers. Donelan is currently working on a follow up book (working title unknown) so keep your eyes open for it. Also if his book is just not enough and you need or want hands on experience or training; Check out his courses on tactical tracking at his website; Tactical Tracking Operations School (TTOS).
