Use Outdoor Clues to Find Your Way,
Predict the Weather,
Track Animals—and Other Forgotten Skills
ABOUT THE LOST ART OF READING NATURE’S SIGNS
Gooley’s more than two decades of pioneering outdoor experience include research among the Dayak people of Borneo and the Tuareg of the Sahara. With his first book, The Natural Navigator, he started a renaissance in the rare art of reading nature’s clues.
Now, in The Lost Art of Reading Nature’s Signs, Gooley has compiled more than 850 outdoor tips—many not found in any other book in the world—that will open readers’ eyes to nature’s hidden logic. He shares techniques for forecasting and tracking, and for walking in the country or city, along the coast, and by night. This is the ultimate resource on what the land, sun, moon, stars, plants, animals, and clouds can reveal—if you only know how to look!
TRISTAN GOOLEY became known as the “natural navigator” after he wrote a winning book of that name, which taught you how to use anything from the stars to spiders’ webs as a compass. This guide is the advanced-level sequel, and in terms of sheer did-you-knows per page it is one of the richest, densest, most rewarding books on nature I have read in a long time.
