Summary

Summary

Long before Scotland Yard or the FBI, Nature finger-printed her numerous family, writes Ellsworth Jaeger in his remarkable book about a little-known field. Tracks may take us back to the Earth's beginnings or give us a complete autobiography of a living animal from day to day. Tracks and Trailcraft presents a wealth of lore. In his crisp, direct style Ellsworth Jaeger tells how to read nature's signs written in mud, brush, and even in water and sky. This is a perfect book for the naturalist, the hunter, the weekend tracker, the nature guide, or the camp counselor.

Library Journal Review

With hunting season in full swing, Jaeger's 1948 volume should prove popular. Here he offers a practical guide to recognizing the footprints of numerous critters large and small in various terrains. Remarkably, he includes identifying fossilized prints and even differentiating among insect trails. Not just for hunters, this would serve anyone who enjoys viewing fauna in their natural habitats.
