Hone your senses and learn to read the hidden signs of nature--from master outdoorsman Tristan Gooley, New York Times-bestselling author of The Secret World of Weather and The Lost Art of Reading Nature's Signs

"Equal parts alfresco inspiration, interesting factoids, how-to instructions and self-help advice."--The Wall Street Journal

When most of us go for a walk, a single sense--sight--tends to dominate our experience. But when New York Times-bestselling author and expert navigator Tristan Gooley goes for a walk, he uses all five senses to "read" everything nature has to offer. A single lowly weed can serve as his compass, calendar, clock, and even pharmacist.

In How to Read Nature, Gooley introduces readers to his world--where the sky, sea, and land teem with marvels. Plus, he shares 15 exercises to sharpen all of your senses. Soon you'll be making your own discoveries, every time you step outside!
