Tom Brown, Jr., the bestselling author of The Tracker and the acclaimed Field Guide series, simply and eloquently shares the beauty and enlightenment of his own spiritual awakening. An ancient mystical experience, the Vision Quest was undertaken by Native American Indians as an odyssey of self-kwledge and fulfillment--a spiritual journey into the wilderness and the soul. The peace, insight and sense of well-being they gained on the Vision Quest is a lasting testament to man's relationship with nature. Now, America's most respected outdoorsman reveals the secrets of this dramatic and profoundly moving ritual.
Tom Brown, Jr. began to learn hunting and tracking at the age of eight under the tutelage of an Apache elder, medicine man, and scout in Toms River, New Jersey, and is the author of 16 books on nature. Recently, he was the technical advisor on The Hunted, a major motion picture starring Tommy Lee Jones and Benecio Del Toro. In 1978, Tom founded the Tracker School in the New Jersey Pine Barrens where he offers more than 25 classes about wilderness survival and environmental protection.
