This practical guide to animal tracking is a one-of-its-kind manual, based on
information developed with the help of southern Africa’s few remaining traditional
trackers and their centuries-old wisdom in the field.
It presents the more concrete and obvious wildlife signs for some 160 animals
and teams them with a host of seemingly unrelated details to give a comprehensive
picture of recent – and not-so-recent – traffic through the bush.
Simple, bulleted text guides readers through the key points and teaches the
broad-based observational skills required to detect and interpret messages; multiple
photographs, some annotated, along with accurate track drawings for all the animals,
offer a clear visual guide too.
Rich in detail, accurate, and with an instructive introduction, this guide to the
region’s animal tracks and signs is every tracker’s go-to manual.
