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
  • 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.
