Books available

The products page has the second edition of my Tracker's Field Guide, as well as my Walk with the Animal that covers methods for trailing animals even in challenging situations. It covers practical and intuitive techniques illustrated by 30 case stories. Some comments from veteran trackers:

"This is a great piece of work and it will be a pleasure to show it to other trackers and students."

"Just received James Lowery's new book "Walk with the Animal: A Tracking Methodology" on trailing animals. Really great!"

"Walk with the Animal is a long overdue book on tracking. It delves into very advanced techniques and ideas. This is a must read and own book."

Special Trainings :

We would look forward to talking with you about special trainings for your group. We can also schedule a PowerPoint presentation for your group about tracking & awareness, at no charge.

Field Biology Consulting:

This last fall we conducted a special weekend workshop for biologists in the San Francisco Bay Area, in distinguishing tracks of kit fox, gray fox, red fox and coyote. Please contact us if your field biology consulting firm or group would like help in survey work or training that involves tracking.

 

We hope to see you in a class.
