Mantrailing fasziniert immer mehr Menschen, und auch ihre vierbeinigen Teampartner haben sichtlich Freude daran, denn für sie stellt das Verfolgen von Spuren eine artgerechte Beschäftigung dar. Das Einmalige an dieser Form der Nasenarbeit ist, dass der Individualgeruch eines bestimmten Menschen gesucht wird. Außerdem müssen Mensch und Hund eng zusammenarbeiten, damit die Suche optimal verläuft und am Ende das Gefühl von Zufriedenheit und Freunde über den Erfolg steht. Egal, ob man Mantrailing als Hobby betreibt oder ein Ernstfall-Mantrailer werden will, das Training sollte immer auf einem soliden Fundament aufbauen. Und genau diese Basis vermittelt dieses Buch in komprimierter Form, indem es den Schwerpunkt auf praktische Schritt-für-Schritt Anleitungen legt, die auf langjährig erprobten Trainingsabläufen basieren. Die nötige Theorie wird ganz nebenbei vermittelt.

A Contemporary in Dissent
Author: Oswald Bayer, Roy A. Harrisville, Mark C. Mattes
Publisher: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing
In this biography -- translated for the first time into English -- German theologian Oswald Bayer describes the life and work of journalist-theologian Johann Georg Hamann (1730 1788). At a time when it seemed that the forces of secularization were attempting to claim the future, Hamann churned out small publications aimed at undermining the Enlightenment zeitgeist, turning its assumptions upside down and skewering its pretensions. Although largely forgotten until recent times, Hamann as radical dissenter -- whom Goethe called the "brightest man of his age" -- remains relevant today, as Bayer shows in this book.
