Om forfatteren

Tristan Gooley is the award-winning and international bestselling author of titles such as The Walker's Guide to Outdoor Clues and Signs, How to Read Water and How to Read a Tree. Through his journeys, teaching and writing, he has pioneered a renaissance in the rare art of natural navigation.

Tristan is the only living person to have both flown solo and sailed singlehanded across the Atlantic. He has explored close to home and walked with and studied the methods of tribal peoples in some of the remotest regions on Earth.

Anmeldelser

«Discover a whole new world... a journey through the intricate, detailed and often-missed sides of a walk.»

<i>Wanderlust</i>

«THE NATURAL EXPLORER take us on a multi-sensory, literary journey intent on heightening awareness of our surroundings. An ambitious combination of Gooley's own insights and those of countless other writers, explorer and philosophers, this is serious armchair adventuring.»

<i>Prospect</i> Magazine

«Gooley returns with a highly readable and engaging work devoted to the temporarily mislaid art of exploration... it's an inspiring account but also a turning point - perhaps a classic in years to come - because its simple aim is to help you recognise what your senses are telling you. It's also an object lesson in how to frame a call to action, because this is a book you can't put down until you absolutely have to get out and start seeing the world as you should. And that's when the adventure really begins...»

<i>Countryfile</i>

«The Natural Explorer by Tristan Gooley is a call to enrich our travel experiences through connecting with nature - essentially a greater awareness of our surroundings... Chapters include the sky, the earth and time - and as someone who can get around the Tate in about half an hour, I paid particular attention here.»

<i>Evening Standard</i>

«A charming and intelligent guide to exploring the local landscape.»

<i>Financial Times</i>

«Celebrated explorer Tristan Gooley gives a fascinating insight into how to connect with nature and heighten the enjoyment of outdoor discoveries, be they grandiose or modest...Are you a traveller or an explorer? This account divorces the two and aims to really open our eyes...»

<i>Press Association</i>

«... Tristan Gooley knows a thing or two about adventure... this is in part a history of exploration, but also a practical guide.»

<i>Lonely Planet Magazine</i>

«The author's experience is to encourage travellers to be inquisitive about where they are in all its aspects, an intention which I happily endorse. Curiosity is an invaluable trait... this book is particularly relevant to walkers. Walking is the right speed to see, contemplate and learn about landscapes. This book will help you do so.»

<i>The Great Outdoors</i>

«Gooley shows us how to notice sights, sounds and smells we might have been unaware of, supplementing his own insights with those of travellers, explorers and thinkers of the past.»

The <i>Herald</i>

«Just as enjoyable for armchair explorers.»

<i>Woman's Weekly</i>

«[THE NATURAL EXPLORER] is an essential part of any outdoor/nature-writing library and it's full of wonderful examples of how to read, understand and connect with the landscape.»

<i>Country Walking</i>

«Using poems, diary entries and letters from nature lovers of ancient Rome to the present day, Gooley has written the perfect book to take out walking - and it would be a crime not to find the time to see, and smell, the roses.»

<i>Daily Mail</i>

«The book's key chapter, though, is the first one. Entitled "The Senses", it aims to switch on our powers of perception and, with its thought-provoking discussion of the way we sometimes take touch, taste, smell, hearing and even sight for for granted, it succeeds brilliantly. Did you know, for example, that if you look at a landscape from right to left, rather than from left to right, you will become more observant?»
