Default Tom Brown jr is nothing more than a good con man

Ive been thinking about this for a few years now. Tom has not provided any evidence of Stalking Wolf. If you read his books he says that tracks stay for years after their maker leaves them. So with people asking for proof of Stalking Wolf, why hasn't anyone talked about his tracks? I have never heard or read anything about anyone finding or studying Stalking Wolfs tracks. With that said Im sure we will have a bunch of brownies coming to Toms rescue talking about S.W's tracks, Im calling B.S on those people right now for the simple fact that they would have used this as proof years ago.
The whole S.W story reminds me of stories about a man that I loved and respected in my youth. He did wonderful things for people. He brought them great joy.... He also had magical powers. There are more stories about him around the world than can be counted. But the simple fact remains, and I am sorry kids, but Santa Claus is fake, plain and simple.
I'm a darn good tracker myself, I am self taught. I know there are other trackers out there that have never been to a school for tracking and like me laugh at Toms B.S stories.
So how about it Tom, why not let some of us trackers that are not affiliated with you come to your school and find Stalking Wolfs tracks on our own? Hell, make it easy for us and show us where to start! It will never happen, I know, You have a reputation built from lies that you need to protect. I am not impressed by you.

I read his book Tracker. It is BS from start to finish. The coincidence of him and his friend, having left each other after a tiff, each found a skull and ran to find the other and just happened to meet. Wonderful coincidence! And that part about the fight with poachers and punching thru a block wall without hurting his hand. He beat them up even tho seriously outnumbered, and one had a shot gun that at least could be used as a club. He never even got a scratch. Sticking a lit cloth in a gas tank will not do anything except burn out (attempted felony arson). I have seen this done to stolen vehicles without more than a little scorched paint. Even the name Stalking Wolf does not fit the name pattern of Athabascans. I loved that story about the dogs in the quarry - pure BS.

the only person that could do these things is Chuck Norris, and since you are not talking about him then this must be BS as you stated.

I must disagree with you most vehemently! Tom Brown's 2 part survival library is leveling my couch. No other book in my library was just the right thickness. I think it was fate that made me purchase that book.

It's a shame TB couldn't escape the commercial, must make lots of money grind...

"And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine." Revelation 6:5-6.

Even a shallow, cursory look at the importance of finance, banking, stock market, commerce and the overwhelming shadow cast by the entertainment industry (I call this current generation the "Entertain Me, NOW!" generation) will reveal the black horse and rider in all his glory...

After all, what do we call the Friday after Thanksgiving?

My greatest respect is reserved (I once greatly respected TB, having read everything of his in the old MOTHER EARTH NEWS magazine) for those who place principle, substance, integrity, truth and honesty above money...way above money.

I'd much rather be a skinny, hungry but honest man of integrity...than be dining sumptiously every day off of earnings that engender vanity, pride and total and utter self-interest.

Also note, the use of the term 'oil' in the bible passage quoted above. Of course, in the day this was written, it was olive oil that held such currency. Just interesting that today, 'oil' of a different kind is now king.

I know nothing of the SW story.In the desert clay tracks can stay for years. What good it will do you cannot be much.

TB jr s book is OK. I have flipped pages at the book store for years now. Nothing revolutionary or brilliant. Just seemed to be solid old logic written down. Can one own up to inventing those techniques ? I hope TB does not try.

Maybe because he wants to "pass"?

That wasn't Gandalf. That was Dumbledor.

rodale, I do not know much about Tom Brown other than he puts out a weird looking knife that I would never consider carrying. Since my knowledge of him and his creds are limited, I will reserve judgement regarding his character. I do know that it is not an actual wolf he speaks of. Stalking Wolf was supposedly an Apache Holyman/Tracker that he says trained him long ago, and was said to be the Grandfather of Brown's best friend. Don't know if he was real or not. I have never heard of him offering any proof of either his training or this man's existence, but since I will never pay for his services or equipment it does not really matter to me either way.
