This work is certainly meets the definition of a field guide; however, it is much more than that. The book is truly a scientific thesis on the art of tracking and covers a wide range of related subjects such as anatomy and scatology. This is the only field guide or book that Iā€™m aware of which covers the pattern of various animal tracks as they left walking, at a trot and in a dead run. The book also teaches such things as how to learn where and when a track cannot be identified and how you can over interpret game sign in the field. While a bit overwhelming in its detail and exactness, I still would recommend this book to anyone just starting out and an experienced tracker alike.
