Summary

Tristan Gooley, author of the internationally best-selling How to Read Water and The Walker's Guide to Outdoor Clues & Signs, shows how it is possible to achieve a level of outdoors awareness that will enable you to sense direction from stars and plants, forecast weather from woodland sounds and predict the next action of an animal from its body language - instantly.

Although once common, this now rare awareness would be labelled by many as a 'sixth sense'. We have become so distanced from this way of experiencing our environment that it may initially seem hard to believe that it is possible, but Tristan Gooley uses a collection of 'keys' to show how everyone can develop this ability and enjoy the outdoors in an exciting way - one that is both new and ancient.

Critic reviews

"Beautifully written...I promise you will feel more in tune with the world around after reading only one chapter of Wild Signs and Star Paths, let alone the book in its entirety." (Royal Institute of Navigation)

"A beautifully written almanac of tricks and tips that we've lost along the way." (Observer)

The voice?

I have read and listened to all Tristans books and was really disappointed that he didn't narrate this one. Peter was fine, but always sounded cross and didn't have the humour and detail that I'm used to.
