Starting with a simple question – ‘Which way am I looking?’ – Tristan Gooley blends natural science, myth, folklore and the history of travel to introduce you to the forgotten art of finding your way using nature’s clues, from the feel of a rock to the look of the moon. Using Tristan’s expert insight and anecdotes, you’ll develop a unique insight into the world around you.

From learning why some trees grow the way they do and how they can help you find your way in the countryside, to discovering how it’s possible to find North simply by looking at a puddle and how natural signs can be used to navigate on the open ocean or in the heart of the city. Wonderfully detailed and full of fascinating stories, this is the seminal guide to the rediscovered art of natural navigation. The Natural Navigator is user-friendly, practical and packed with beautiful illustrations to help natural navigators on their instrument-free journey.
