The Natural Navigator by Tristan Gooley

The Natural Navigator

In this beautifully produced book, Tristan Gooley blends natural science, folklore and history to introduce the skills needed to navigate using nature's own sign-posts, from the appearance of a puddle to the angle of the sun.

This book will help you understand why some trees grow the way they do and how they can help you find your way in the countryside. You'll learn how to find North and how natural signs can be used to navigate anywhere, from the open ocean to the heart of a city. 

The book details how to navigate using signs on land, at sea and in the sky (including the moon, the sun and the stars). It's a very useful resource if you want to become more at home in the wild and more adept at relying on your senses (rather than technology) to find your way. 

The Natural Navigator by Tristan Gooley published (2010) by Virgin Books.
