About Apache Tracker

Apache Tracker is a resource about survival, being a Physical and Spiritual warrior, and oneness with nature or "the spirit that moves in all things." I named this site in honor of the Apache. The Apache was the ultimate, survivor, warrior, guerrilla fighter, and lived in tune with his surroundings, on a spiritual and physical level. However you will find many other topics of interest on this site. Tracking is a mind set and awareness that goes beyond the physical to all levels, including the spiritual.

About the Author
Roger Thunderhands Gilbert is an accomplished writer, musician, and artist. In his lifetime, he has done many things. These would include aviation, the martial arts, and a life long study of spiritual and tribal ritual. In the martial arts, his study has included three disciplines, Aikido, Kung Fu San Soo, and Tai Chi. He also worked with the Special Forces in a training capacity. In the field of aviation, he obtained his private, commercial, and instrument ratings as a pilot, with multi-engine, and flight instructor qualifications. He learned tracking as a boy and has worked with the sheriff’s search and rescue in that capacity. His spiritual knowledge includes in-depth study, and personal experience, with many shamanistic and esoteric practices. He is a practitioner of Kriya yoga, Kundalini yoga, Tantrika, and Chinese inner alchemy. In addition, he received his certificate in acupressure and uses several modalities for healing. He considers himself an authority on the Biblical teachings of Yeshua or Jesus, but considers himself spiritual, not religious. And last but not least, he has done an exhaustive study and been an activist of North American Native tribes and ritual. His own roots are of M├ętis descent, and his spirituality is universal.


Although this book is classified as a work of fiction, I would like to say a word about it. This novel is based on my experiences of growing up in Arizona, and most of it is fact based. The exercises or techniques in the chapter "teaching the techniques" are real, and I encourage you to try them. The Tantric and Yogic descriptions are also authentic. This book is full of esoteric and shamanistic teachings.
My purpose was to entertain while informing. The “Twin Soul” concept offered a "way" to do that. Many have asked me about Hopi prophecy and the fifth world. This novel includes my visions and ideas regarding that, and more. Many writers claim authenticity. Authenticity is like that old saying, "The proof is in the pudding." My view is, try some of the techniques and ideas in this book. There are also advance (tantric) sexual techniques described in this book, in a tasteful and thoughtful way, along with some incidents of fighting. The techniques described regarding the martial arts that are used, are also real and fact based, as are the concepts and traditions surrounding them. The author suggests you seek professional training regarding any fighting art. The bottom line? This book might best be described as, “A Shaman’s Bible” hidden within a novel.

Good Reading

  1. Hi Wakiya! Just discovered your blog and love it! I bought a copy of your book, it will take time to reach me here in Italy. I'm convinced I had a past lifetime (and maybe more than one) as an Apache. And now I a student of a "shaman" woman (a Cherokee metis) who lives in Arizona, in Cottonwood. I was there for my apprenticeship last May and I will come back many time. I'm glad to meet you! :)
