Use Outdoor Clues to Find Your Way, Predict the Weather, Locate Water, Track Animals―and Other Forgotten Skills (Natural Navigation)

Turn every walk into a game of detection—from master outdoorsman Tristan Gooley, New York Times-bestselling author of The Secret World of Weather and The Natural Navigator When writer and navigator Tristan Gooley journeys outside, he sees a natural world filled with clues.

The roots of a tree indicate the sun’s direction; the Big Dipper tells the time; a passing butterfly hints at the weather; a sand dune reveals prevailing wind; the scent of cinnamon suggests altitude; a budding flower point south.

To help you understand nature as he does, Gooley shares more than 850 tips for forecasting, tracking, and more, gathered from decades spent walking the landscape around his home and around the world. 

Publisher’s Note: The Lost Art of Reading Nature’s Signs was previously published in the UK under the title The Walker's Guide to Outdoor Clues and Signs.
