Some Thoughts on Scouts and Spies : Based Upon the Experiences of the Author and Historical Observation
by Gerry Barker




Overview -
It takes someone who has really done it to make sense of the nuts and bolts of scouting in hostile territory. This analysis is based on the lives and experiences of frontiersmen like Sam Brady and Simon Kenton in the Kentucky and Tennessee Indian wars. Included are the methods of silent movement, concealment, organization, equipment and internal signals. These techniques are timeless and have been the mainstays of scouts for thousands of years. The focus is on making them work.

"Some Thoughts on Scouts and Spies is not a book to read once. Instead readers will keep referring back to this book to expand their knowledge. It is a book for those those who want to improve their skills in hunting. It is a book for those who have become involved with the reenacting hobby, and find themselves studying and doing 'Historical Archaeology.' For all of them, this book will serve as a manual on the "Scouting" trade."
