'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' - Spectator 'Beautifully written... I promise you will feel more in tune with the world around after reading only one chapter of Wild Signs and Star Paths, let alone the book in its entirety' - Royal Institute of Navigation 'A beautifully written almanac of tricks and tips that we've lost along the way' - Observer Tristan Gooley, author of the internationally bestselling How To Read Water and The Walker's Guide to Outdoor Clues & 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.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The tick effect is the way tree branches in the northern hemisphere grow closer to horizontal on the southern side and closer to vertical on the northern side, which creates a recognizable tick or check mark shape when the tree is viewed from one side. It is a recognition aid that helps you navigate your way around things you already know. #2 The tick effect is the way tree branches in the northern hemisphere grow closer to horizontal on the southern side and closer to vertical on the northern side, which creates a recognizable tick or check mark shape when the tree is viewed from one side. It is a recognition aid that helps you navigate your way around things you already know. #3 The Orion method is a straightforward way of gauging direction using a pattern in the night sky. It is not a method of measuring degrees or words like east or west, but instead helps you navigate your way around things you already know. #4 We have two ways of thinking, and we need both because each is excellent at certain things and rubbish at others. The best clue is that if we can tell we are thinking about something, it’s conscious thinking. If we react to something without thinking about it, then we have thought about it, just using the system that we don’t consciously acknowledge.

As the author of the international bestsellers THE WALKER'S GUIDE and HOW TO READ WATER, Tristan Gooley knows how to de-code the phenomena and signs to look for. As he says, 'I want you to get to know these signs as I have, as characters. By studying their habits and behaviours, the signs come to life and the meaning reveals itself. From this flows an ability to read what is happening and what is about to happen'. This is the ultimate guide to exploring an undiscovered world, one that hides in front of our eyes.
