Share this idea!

Humans began their journey on this planet by learning to survive, then to steward the Earth, but they have forgotten that they live in a great system. Author Tom Brown, Jr., renowned tracker and teacher, talks with Earth911 about his latest book, Tom Brown’s Guide to Healing the Earth. Brown, who was taught by an Apache elder he met as a boy to live in harmony with nature, shares how small steps taken each day can create vast change in the world. He and co-author Randy Walker, Jr., recently shared a summary of his ideas in an article for Earth911.

Tom shares how he met Stalking Wolf, the Apache who mentored him in exploring and appreciating the interconnectedness of nature and humanity. By pausing and stepping back to take in a meadow or clearing, his tracking students learn to recognize what should be and how natural patterns have been interrupted, pointing the way to a lost child, a fleeing criminal, or a friend in need.

We also explore how modern life can be altered in small but important ways to restore the steward’s relationship with nature. It’s a fascinating half-hour with a thoughtful teacher and explorer who has trained people around the world to survive in the wilderness.
