How to Read Nature: Awaken Your Senses to the Outdoors You've Never Noticed

by Tristan Gooley

Learn to be in tune with your surrounding outdoors

Rock-climbing. Running a marathon. Skydiving. Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. We all have goals that someday we hope to achieve.

But why can't someday be now? If you feel illiterate about the natural world and getting out into the natural world more is important, How to Read Nature: Awaken Your Senses to the Outdoors You've Never Noticed is the perfect resource. Any kind of new hobby can be overwhelming but author Tristan Gooley is the ideal guide to get you started. Gooley has led expeditions on five continents and is the only living person to have both flown and sailed solo across the Atlantic.

But you need neither crampons nor a skiff to utilize How to Read Nature. Gooley helps you become literate and mindful of the natural world by introducing the idea of natural navigation. It's the perfect way to get started, and with suggested exercises and an extensive list of further reading, there are plenty of directions to follow up and become one with Nature.
