Tom Brown III

Tom Brown III (T3) is a lifelong student and practitioner of primitive living skills and wilderness survival. Tom grew up learning ancestral skills from his father, Tom Brown Jr, who founded the Tracker Wilderness Survival School. This upbringing showed him the profound effect of reconnecting people to nature.

Tom lives in Oregon and is the Director of Adult Programming at Trackers Earth. He is also a passionate photographer, writer, fly-fisherman and traditional archer. We are delighted to have Tom as one of our main contributors and team members.

More important than anything else to me is the grasp I think I can have over what is being taught here, meaning it's presented in such a way, not only do I remember it, but can see myself doing it without anxiety or rather, with assurance and confidence that I can get it done and put this knowledge to use, instead of worrying about my proficiency, etc. I can not recommend this class highly enough and have told all my friends and family and anyone else who will listen about it. Just learning about a book Tom mentioned ('You're Not Sick, You're Thirsty, Don't Treat Thirst with Medication'), changed my and other people's lives I told about it. Drink water and take Tom's classes - they are life changing and will improve your life immeasurably.

I've never thought of preparing for survival as I've always had guides, however thinking about it, if something happened to the guide I'd be in big trouble. This has been a good introduction and I'll be more prepared in future.
