The Natural Navigator
The Rediscovered Art of Letting Nature Be Your Guide
by Tristan Gooley

 
Before GPS, before the compass, and even before cartography, humankind was navigating.




A windswept tree, the depth of a puddle, or a trill of birdsong could point the way home—and, for the alert traveler, they still can..

Whether you’re exploring in the mountains or on lunch break, natural navigation can keep you on course and alert to the wonders of the natural world. Adventurer and navigation expert Tristan Gooley unlocks the directional clues hidden in the sun, moon, stars, clouds, weather patterns, lengthening shadows, changing tides, plant growth, and the habits of local wildlife.

Enriched by helpful illustrations, and filled with navigational anecdotes collected across centuries, continents, and cultures, The Natural Navigator proves that anyone with a curious mind can still find south by looking at the moon—and find adventure in their own backyard..
