Books of Interest — Entering the Mind of the Tracker


Bear & Company

Can you hear the song of the wilderness?

Tamarack Song says that to do that we must learn to listen with all of our senses. It is a skill to be found in the bundle of Old Ways which we all carry deep within us. It requires staying in the question, rather than determining the answer.

Song learned the technique from native Elders and from a family of Wolves that he was privileged to live with for a few years. He began teaching because people sought him out and asked to learn. Now he is recording what he knows, and continues to learn, for those of us who aren’t able to join him in the wild. Through the pages of this book we can follow along as he teaches, discovers, and revisits the subtle world he walks so easily in.

He writes like a storyteller, mindful of the pictures which the sound and combinations of his words create. The sounds, smells, and sights of the northern Wisconsin woods come to life as we read. He tells us that tracking is a metaphor for conscious living, and then he shows us what that means. More than just a book, this is a world that readers can disappear into over and over again.    SHOP FOR THE BOOK
