Get ready to put away your map and look up from your GPS with this glorious introduction to the art of finding your way using natural clues.
Starting with a simple question - 'Which way am I looking?' - Tristan Gooley blends natural science, myth, folklore and the history of travel to introduce you to the rare and ancient art of finding your way using nature's own signposts, from the feel of a rock to the look of the moon. With Tristan's help, you'll learn why some trees grow the way they do and how they can help you find your way in the countryside.
You'll discover how it's possible to find north simply by looking at a puddle and how natural signs can be used to navigate on the open ocean and in the heart of the city. Wonderfully detailed and full of fascinating stories, this is a glorious exploration of the rediscovered art of natural navigation.
"Tristan Gooley’s The Natural Navigator will teach you how to find your way using not just the moon, sun and stars but spider’s webs, tennis courts and even ruts on a track. He throws in entertaining anecdotes from the history of navigation and from his own impressive Atlantic journeys, but really he’s giving you an addictive hobby, and a newly refined sense of time and place." (The Sunday Times)
"Changes the way you experience the world." (Sunday Times)
"Wonderfully stimulating." (Michael Palin)

A very descriptive dialogue!
A very descriptive dialogue from Tristans observations and his studied research. This book is very comfortable to read and I would rate this as a very smooth ride with a quiet tone.. very clever and topically brilliant. Will read again.. bedside book.

Will listen again
Although the subject material is mixed, it all comes together into a wonderful introduction into a education of understanding the place you are on this planet we belong.
