News on The Tracker Newsletter
There is nothing else like
it! Six information packed issues per year of new and exciting knowledge from
Tom's vast experience in the woods. Subscribers to The TRACKER will be the first
to know items of interest such as updates on TV, radio, movie, new book
releases, lecture and class schedules, announcements about specialty events in
the making such as canoe trips, bow and arrow classes, etc., where to get
specialty merchandise and hard-to-find items such as blankets, out-of-print
books, survival gear, Indian tools and artifacts, craft materials, clothing and
foot gear patterns, tanning supplies, updates on pertinent areas of history in
the making around the nation, and most importantly, it will be jammed with
detailed instruction concepts and true-life experiences that you will find both
practical and inspiring. This first issue is a taste of what this newsletter
will become -- we potentially hope it to become The TRACKER Magazine - we
will expand as you help us through your subscriptions as well as your
contributions in any and all areas.
Any student wishing to write
for the Newsletter should send it to Dick Mills at the Eastern headquarters
address. (There will be no payment for articles.) All contributions are welcome
and will be subject to editing; articles, personal experiences, illustrations,
bits of humor, cartoons, photographs etc., all are welcome. We’d like to know
what you'd like to see in this Newsletter - feel free to write comments or
suggestions. Thanks for your support!
We are pleased to announce
Berkley Books of NY has bought the rights to the first four volumes
of the new survival handbook series - the first two will be on
the market starting in the fall of 1982 - (1) wilderness survival; (2) how to
track and nature observation; (3) Native American skills; (4) alternate
lifestyles and city survival. Two veteran students will be working with Tom on
the books - Brandt Morgan as coauthor and Daphne Pereyra as illustrator. We are
expecting to do up to 16 volumes.
Tom has packed even more information than ever in each of his classes.
Example: mini classes now contain the amount of tracking and skills
instruction of earlier standard classes! Tom
has added so much to each skill-level class, what was termed
"Advanced" class in 1980 in N.J. and Wa. is now being called
"Advanced Standard", and a higher skill-level class is termed
"Advanced". Call or write
if you need more clarification.
