Product description

Review

Winner of the Outdoor Book of the Year, The Great Outdoors Awards 2015, 2015 INDIEFAB Honorable Mention for Adventure & Recreation

"Gooley interprets clues like a private investigator of the wilds, leaving no stone unturned . . . For those inclined to solve mysteries written into the landscape, this author's lead is one they'll want to follow."-The Wall Street Journal

"[Gooley] has become the global expert on natural navigation, finding his way around the world using nothing but natural clues and pointers. His discovery (made on a sailing expedition to Iceland)-that if, when at sea, you see more than 10 birds in any given five minute window this means you are within 40 miles of land-has become part of the British military's survival guidance."-The Daily Beast

"How rare to find a book that is truly brilliant. The Lost Art of Reading Nature's Signs, by Tristan Gooley, is brilliant in the English slang sense (as in being terrific); it is brilliant in its comprehensive conveyance of all the ways to interpret natural and man-made landscapes; and brilliance glitters from Gooley's sparkling wit."-Foreword

"Gooley's comprehensive volume should pique the curiosity of budding nature-lovers and is ideal for anyone keen on forging a deeper connection with the land."-Publishers Weekly

"While Gooley's tips encompass useful, practical ways to predict a change in weather, determine when a predator may be prowling and find true North at night, his true gift is in igniting curiosity and wonder about the world around us."-Shelf Awareness

"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 . . . its joy in deduction is infectiously delightful."
-James McConnachie, The Sunday Times

"I for one will never look at the . . . countryside in quite the same way again."
-Stephen Moss, Countryfile Magazine

"Gooley can show the most moonstruck how to interpret their surroundings. Even the intrepid Bear Grylls could learn a trick or two from this book."-The Times

"Anyone interested in walking out of doors at any time would be well advised to read this excellent book."-The Royal Institute of Navigation

"As with his earlier, equally important The Natural Navigator, this text is densely packed with information, engagingly and clearly written . . . Every outdoor-lover should have at least one Tristan Gooley book in their library. He's attained national treasure status, as useful and educative as he is endearingly unique."-The Great Outdoors magazine

"Learning so much [ ] that I might have to take another long walk"-Nicholas Crane
