Designed for both beginners and experienced explorers this guide is fully illustrated and comprehensive. It includes practical information, time-tested nature skills, and new ways to rediscover the earth around us.

Yet it is possible to be prepared.
A truly amazing book about the wilderness in backyards, abandoned lots, and hedgerows, yet one of Tom Brown's lesser known field guides. Filled with animal descriptions and anecdotes from his own learning experiences, keep your eyes peeled for tidbits on how millipedes can help you to trail deer, ants can help you learn to track animals across bare rock, and how a common garden spider and a mockingbird teach a young Tom Brown about friendship, jealousy, and companionship with wild beings.
