About this book

Jim Lowery is among North America's leading tracking experts. In The Tracker's Field Guide he distills his remarkable expertise, gained over decades of intensive research and practical field experience, into a comprehensive field guide to tracking North American mammals. Fully illustrated with hundreds of drawings and high-resolution photographs, The Tracker's Field Guide sets a new standard for tracking books.

"Jim's book represents a valuable addition to tracking literature. It is a wealth of natural history information gained from long hours observing animals in the field. For those wishing to expand their knowledge of mammals in the wild, Jim's book warrants long and careful study."
– James C. Halfpenny, PhD, president of A Naturalist's World

"Jim Lowery has written a superb field guide based on a lifetime of tracking experience and thousands of hours instructing students in the art and science of this ancient skill. The information he presents is highly insightful and guaranteed to enrich your own journey in tracking."
– Bill Marple, director of tracking at Tom Brown Jr's Tracker School and founder of Earth Voices

"The Tracker's Field Guide is a truly helpful work of art! Gratitude to Jim Lowery for his user friendly and inviting presentation of the complex and magical world of tracking and connecting to the natural world."
– Jon Young, author of What the Robin Knows and founder of the 8 Shields Institute

"His formula [...] is a combination of good photographs, concise drawings and illustrations, wreathed with prose that's uncompromisingly clear and utterly unaffected. Perusing this book produces an uncanny feel that you stand beside someone on a trail, who is pointing at tracks with a twig and making laconic observations."
San Francisco Chronicle

"[T]his practical guide includes everything trackers need to make sense of signs and understand an animal's life story."
Book News

"Based on real, scientific field experience, this book is an invaluable resource for anyone studying animal tracking around the world."
– Chris Chisholm, The Wolf Camp and Wolf College
