Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Prolific author, operator of a popular wilderness survival school (in New Jersey's Pine Barrens), ``The Tracker'' Brown believes that society and school have dulled our sense of the interconnectedness in all nature. His ``field guide'' stresses awareness, tracking, survival, and a philosophy derived from an Apache elder, and he hopes parents will teach their children these values and skills. The first half of this seventh in a series discusses careful observing in nature; the second, aimed at children aged 4-11, presents survival skills for shelter, water, fire, and food. There are specific suggestions for games to teach these concepts, but the bulk of the text urges teachers (parents) to value the nature ethic. For public libraries, city or country.-- Roland Person, Southern Illinois Univ. at Carbondale Lib.
