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

Recommended by Paul, City Lights Books

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 go exploring in the mountains or on a lunch break, natural navigation will keep you on course and open your eyes to the small wonders of the natural world. Almost anything in our environment can help us find our way—if we know what to look for. Adventurer and navigation expert Tristan Gooley unlocks the directional clues hidden in:

the sun, moon, and 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.
