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. 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.
"Brown is a tracker, a practitioner of a skill that faded away with the frontier in this country. He stalks men and animals, mostly in the remote Pine Barrens of New Jersey but also as far afield as the Virgin Islands and Wyoming."--People Magazine on Tom Brown, Jr.
