David Brown was born and grew up in Malden, Massachusetts, in an area surrounded by forest, rock outcrop and wetland. His lifelong interest in natural history began while roaming these woods as a boy. An avid birder from the age of twelve when he was stunned by the beauty of a Baltimore oriole that flew over his house, he once hiked ten miles to see a rare bird reported in a metropolitan park near Boston. He is a graduate of Tufts University with a B.A. in English, a decorated marine veteran of the Viet Nam conflict and a public school teacher of 20 years experience. Today he operates a wildlife services business (www.dbwildlife.com) and writes on natural history subjects and issues. David is a lifelong naturalist and teacher whose interest in animal tracks and sign began in the early 1980s. He studied the field for six years before starting to present tracking programs himself through his company, David Browns Wildlife Services. Since then he has amassed a collection of thousands of high-resolution photographs of wildlife sign that serve as the principal resource for indoor programs as well as for the images that appear in his two earlier publications, The Companion Guide to Trackards for North American Mammals and the Trackards, and now in The Next Step. In addition to tracking programs, he has also conducted dozens of wildlife inventories for public and private landholders and has served as a wildlife education consultant to environmental institutions.
