By Tristan Gooley
A paean to the beauty and majesty of nature, especially the nature we overlook in our back gardens and local parks. And like all the best books, it makes the world around you a lot more interesting'
Tristan Gooley, author of the internationally bestselling How To Read Water and The Walker's Guide to Outdoor Clues and Signs, shows how it is possible to achieve a level of outdoors awareness that will enable you to sense direction from stars and plants, forecast weather from woodland sounds and predict the next action of an animal from its body language - instantly.
Although once common, this now rare awareness would be labelled by many as a 'sixth sense'. We have become so distanced from this way of experiencing our environment that it may initially seem hard to believe that it is possible, but Tristan Gooley uses a collection of 'keys' to show how everyone can develop this ability and enjoy the outdoors in an exciting way - one that is both new and ancient.
A cliché to say a book is unputdownable - but there is something fascinating to learn on almost every page! If you like the outdoors and nature you really CAN start to see things you normally will have missed, as well as passing these nuggets on to your kids - who will be impressed! i.e. did you know the sword on Orion's Belt always points South..?
