"Mantracking is entertaining and educational, and surprisingly hard to put down. For the beginner tracker it's a great learning tool and for those more skilled it acts as a solid reminder. I would definitely recommend it to outdoorsmen, trackers, SAR groups, law enforcement, and the military as reliable reference material." ~ Guy Kerr, 25 year veteran of the Calgary Police, international SAR instructor and contributing author of several SAR Manuals
"The authors highlight the impact we have on our environment, even when we're doing our best to have none... I definitely learned a lot... I'm now tracking my kids!" ~ Michael McKay, CEO Scouts Canada
"Mantracking makes me want to get in the bush right now! ... I'm seeing things with a new set of eyes and noticing more than ever before. Awesome book!" ~ Brian, Hunter/Outdoor Enthusiast

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:
Terry Grant was the face of the hit television show Mantracker for six seasons. Raised in Ontario, Terry headed west as soon as he got his driver’s licence and worked as a cowboy for legendary Alberta ranches like the Bar-U and the OH for close to 25 years. While in Alberta, he honed his animal tracking skills as a cowboy, hunter, guide, and outfitter. Terry is a seasoned Search and Rescue professional, having worked with the Foothills, Alberta Search and Rescue Team for more than 12 years. His reputation as a tracker impressed the British military, which enlisted his expertise to help soldiers identify hidden improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Calgary made him a “white hatter” in 2011, and Terry continues to volunteer at the Calgary Stampede annually. He lives near High River, Alberta and when he’s not on the back of his horse, Terry can be found in his shop working on his custom carpentry, out on the golf course, or playing with his border collies. In addition to this book, Terry offers courses for those interested in the art of tracking. See www.trackingwithterry.com.
