Rezendes's book takes turns wandering in different directions, often through a factual journey of animal tracks and behaviour patterns and then to his own experiences with them as he is tracking them and finally to his own very deeply personal experiences in trying to live life as a human being, in the end, must.

In his book ''The Wild Within: Adventures in Nature and Animal Teachings,'' Mr. Rezendes describes how he and a group of students who had spent all day tracking a bobcat in the snow emerged into a clearing to find a deer's carcass stripped to the bone. Instantly the mood of the group changed from exuberance to revulsion. Mr. Rezendes said tracking involves specialized skills and knowledge, but first and foremost it requires patience: the ability to remain open to what the woods have to offer.

This book is awesome. I got from the library years ago and just had to have a copy for myself. The author,an expert on tracking,shows you how nature works and how to open your eyes while in the woods to see things others never see. Great stories of his rough and tumble past to how he has achieved peace through his relationship with the forest. Highly recommended.

EXCELLENT - LOVE THE WRITINGS AND STORIES-

The title of this book intrigued me, but I found I could only skim through it. It reminded me too much of the books of Tom Brown, Jr. who is also a master tracker and spiritual writer. There are many parallels between the two, but Brown lives in NJ and Rezendes in MA. If I hadn't already read so many of Brown's books, I may have found this of more interest. It was more of a mix of autobiography and nature observation than I expected. It may have been better to have kept it as one or the other. His awakening experience at the end of the book (p. 211+) was awesome. I liked how he used the term wild/wildness instead of using a religious or spiritual term to describe it.

Everything Paul Rezendes shows his students is right in front of them and requires no explanation. This is an irony the wilderness student is familiar with, and so is the spiritual practitioner.
THE WILD WITHIN is a book about tracking, and a delightful record of an enthusiastic and engaging teacher. It is also a very open yet unassuming autobiography, including the author's experiences as leader of a motorcycle gang, yoga student, and now ardent outdoorsman. His spiritual insights are without denomination or zeal, and do not intrude in the slightest upon his tribute to the natural world and the wonders it holds for anyone who will walk softly and listen.
The first meeting of a stalking seminar begins when students arrive at the location to find Rezendes's jeep baring a sign that reads, "Your program has begun. You must find your instructor. He is watching you." Students poke around for quite a while, but they cannot find a man who is sitting no more than ten feet away, watching from a thicket. Even when they nearly step on him. Even when he shouts "Turkeys!" at them. Rezendes writes, "Everything we ever need to learn, if we want to know deeply who we are, if we want to know what keeps us from connecting with nature, is all here in front of us all the time. All we have to do is pay attention..." and observe how, as his students learned in this instance, how certain thought habits keep us out of our sensory awareness and separate us from our own life.

This is a book which requires that one actually read the dust jacket description. From the cover and the title, a reader might think this is a book about tracking skills. It is. However, the animal that Rezendes teaches his students to track is ultimately themselves.
The other reviews here already outline Rezendes' personal history, which he often uses as example in his teachings. His approach to self discovery is one I'd not encountered before, however. Yes, I know many seek quiet in the woods to get in touch with their own spirit, but this notion of tracking and stalking another animal to achieve this end is fascinating to me. Fascinating also are the connections he makes from seemingly unrelated incidents such as a bobcat's journey and that of spiritual seekers. He gives us simple exercises we can try in our own "wilderness" to help us experience the ideas he suggests.
His ability to read the signs left by the animals amazed me, and I have been one to look at such things carefully in my own forays into the wild. This book shows that there is so much I haven't seen, both in tracking wild creatures and my own journey through life.
Whether you agree with his approach or not, this is a highly readable and thought-provoking book, a refreshing change from most of the "self help" genre.

Paul Rezendes's book "The Wild Within" is a wonderful book, easy to read and sometimes as casual as a hot summer's day and at others intense and deep with illuminating experiences of the searcher for truth, no matter how contradictory this sounds. His life, that of a man trying to find a way to reality if you like when it was always there all the time just waiting to be noticed once the chattering mind has been silenced, is fascinating. His years as leader of a motorcycle gang and then his route to the opposite extreme that of a yoga and ashram founder show how much suffering someone must sometimes go through to reach that impossible peak where you are already standing. Rezendes's book takes turns wandering in different directions, often through a factual journey of animal tracks and behaviour patterns and then to his own experiences with them as he is tracking them and finally to his own very deeply personal experiences in trying to live life as a human being, in the end, must. It is remarkable how the intensity of the book varies throughout, the animal connections are really amazing, such as his direct communication with the Moose and the almost scary reply of the fox to his own infringements on its territory. If you're looking for a strictly tracking book, don't read this, if its more you want, maybe. Delightful and sometimes questing.
