9780762784424: Tracking Humans: A Fundamental Approach To Finding Missing Persons, Insurgents, Guerrillas, And Fugitives From The Law

Tracker. The very word evokes images of buckskin-clad braves crouching over the ground, carefully studying the signs before them—a part of history. But the modern world has not put behind it the need for the earthy business of tracking. Such skills are still routinely used by the military, rescue personnel, and law enforcement, as well as by hunters and people living at subsistence level throughout the world.  Tracking Humans is the ultimate authoritative guide to this most complex pursuit.  A great resource for military, law enforcement, and rescue professionals, Tracking Humans is also useful for outdoor enthusiasts.  Users will find it invaluable as an on-site manual to assist in any ongoing search.

Unlike many tracking manuals, this guide focuses on tracking humans, whether they're enemy combatants or lost children. Author David Diaz explains what it takes to be an expert tracker, from the physical stamina to the focus and perception necessary to do the job correctly. He explains the tools of the tracker and presents essential safety tips every tracker should know. Tracking Humans is an important tool for anyone dealing with missing persons—it could be an essential lifesaver.

About the Author:

David Diaz is a 20-year U.S. Army Special Forces/Marine Corps professional who recently retired from the U.S. Armed Forces. He first learned about tracking from the son of a Malaysian headhunter, who hunted insurgents in the jungles of Malaysia. He fine-tuned his craft through years of dedicated study and instruction from the finest trackers throughout the world, including the Dyak/Iban of Brunei, Nigrito aborigines from the Philippines, the San Man of Botswana, and U.S. Vietnam-veteran Marine trackers, who gained their skills from the Montagnards in the highlands of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. He has taught these skills to U.S. Army soldiers, police officers, and foreign military forces worldwide, in times of war and peace, in both friendly and hostile environments.

Writer V.L. McCann has a B.A. in Creative Writing, graduating with Honors in 1981 and thereafter serving nearly 12 years as an officer in the U.S. Army. In 1997, McCann became owner and chief writer/editor of Abbacy Professional Writing in Tacoma, Washington.
