The Way of the ScoutBook - 1995
As a boy, Tom Brown, Jr. learned the ancient skills of survival from a Native American he called Grandfather. His most advanced lessons were those of the scout. A member of a secret society, the scout was the eyes and ears of the caln, highly attuned to the earth and the "spirit-that-moves-through-all-things." These physical skills opened the way to heightened perception and true enlightenment... "To the scout, each day is filled with adventure, excitement, intensity, and play. Life is a huge playpen, waiting for the scout to break routine and move out of context, becoming invisible to everyone. Wilderness becomes his home, and the life of society becomes his wilderness..." Tom Brown Jr. The way of the scout is an ancient art of survival that conveys a powerful message for our time--a way to look deeper, a way to live more fully, and a way to transcend the limits of our bodies and minds. The way of the scout is not an easy one. But the experience offers great rewardsof personal awareness and inner peace. A timeless journey that can change our perception of the world--and ourselves.
