Publisher's Summary

Somewhere deep inside, you know what your gift, purpose, and mission are. Boyd Varty, a lion tracker and life coach, reveals how the wisdom from the ancient art of tracking can teach you how to recognize these essential ingredients in a meaningful life.

Know how to navigate, don’t worry about the destination, and stay alert. These are just a few of the strategies that contribute to both successful lion tracking and a life of fulfillment. When we join Boyd Varty and his two friends tracking lions, we are immersed in the South African bush, and, although we learn some of the skills required for actual tracking, the takeaways are the strategies that can be applied to our everyday lives. Trackers learn how to use all of their senses to read the environment and enter into a state of “greater aliveness”. When we learn to find and follow our inner tracks, we learn to see what is deeply important to us. In the same way the trip in the classic Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance was a vehicle to examine how to live out our values, the story of this one-day adventure—with danger and suspense along the way—uses the ancient art of tracking to convey profound lessons on how to live a purposeful, meaningful life of greater harmony.

Way too much story. Not near enough application.

It was entertaining to hear of the author’s life and a long, laborious tale of one of his tracks. But there is little to no actual application or summary of how to put his story into practical application.

Such a delicious read.

I devoured this book. It’s short valuable infotainment. The story telling will keep you leaning in - and sad that it’s such a short ride - but it’s also satisfying as this book is absolutely full of wisdom and warmth. Read it.

What a gem

This is a fantastic book, filled with wisdom, from a unique perspective. Engrossing story-telling. The remedy for the sickly over-domestication of our modern lives, and a call to reconnect with the wild within, and without. Highly recommend

Hear This Call

This is a simple yet elegant story with perfect weaving of the yearning of wild self and also the practical call to a higher way of being. Boyd’s prose is inspired and his reading is delicious.

A deep calling

A profound book full of excitement, passion, insight, and deep wisdom all tied together in the telling of a single day in the wild. It’s a book I’ll read again and again in the coming years.
