Tristan Gooley, "How To Read Water"
A New York Times Bestseller! Read the sea like a Viking and interpret ponds like a Polynesian—with a little help from the “natural navigator”!
In his eye-opening books The Lost Art of Reading Nature’s Signs and The Natural Navigator, Tristan Gooley helped readers reconnect with nature by finding direction from the trees, stars, clouds, and more. Now, he turns his attention to our most abundant—yet perhaps least understood—resource.
Distilled from his far-flung adventures—sailing solo across the Atlantic, navigating with Omani tribespeople, canoeing in Borneo, and walking in his own backyard—Gooley shares hundreds of techniques in How to Read Water.
Readers will: find north using puddles, forecast the weather from waves, decode the colors of ponds, spot dangerous water in the dark, decipher wave patterns on beaches, and more!
Tristan Gooley is the New York Times–bestselling author of How to Read Water, The Lost Art of Reading Nature’s Signs, and The Natural Navigator. His passion for the subject of natural navigation stems from his hands-on experience. He has led expeditions in five continents, climbed mountains in Europe, Africa, and Asia, sailed small boats across oceans, and piloted small aircraft to Africa and the Arctic.
Tristan is the only living person to have both flown solo and sailed single-handedly across the Atlantic, and he is a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Navigation and the Royal Geographical Society. Prior to setting up The Natural Navigator school, Gooley gained extensive experience in the travel industry, and he is currently Vice Chairman of Trailfinders.
