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 exploring in the mountains or on a lunch break, anyone can keep on the right course--provided they know what to look for. In The Natural Navigator , adventurer and navigation expert Tristan Gooley unlocks the directional clues hidden all around us: in the sun, moon, and stars, clouds, weather patterns, lengthening shadows, changing tides, plant growth, the habits of local wildlife, and more. This new, tenth anniversary edition includes a new preface and 16 never-before-seen photographs, plus, Gooley updates and recontextualizes navigational anecdotes collected across centuries, continents, and cultures. The Natural Navigator continues to prove that anyone with a curious mind can still find south by looking at the moon--and find adventure in their own backyard.
