2015 BBC Countryfile Magazine Country Book of the Year

Winner of the Outdoor Book of the Year at The Great Outdoors Awards 2015


The ultimate guide to what the land, sun, moon, stars, trees, plants, animals, sky and clouds can reveal - when you know what to look for. Includes over 850 outdoor clues and signs.

This top ten bestseller is the result of Tristan Gooley's two decades of pioneering outdoors experience and six years of instructing, researching and writing. It includes lots of outdoor clues and signs that will not be found in any other book in the world.

As well as the most comprehensive guide to natural navigation for walkers ever compiled, it also contains clues for weather forecasting, tracking, city walks, coast walks, night walks and dozens of other areas.

From the author of How To Read Water, The Sunday Times Book Of The Year.

MEDIA REVIEWS
It's like being given some sort of magical text... eye-opening and invaluable. -- India Knight * Sunday Times Magazine *
In terms of sheer did-you-knows per page it is one of the richest, densest, most rewarding books on nature I have read in a long time...its joy in deduction is infectiously delightful. -- James McConnachie * Sunday Times *
Learning so much in The Walker's Guide, the new book from Tristan Gooley, that I might have to take another long walk ... * Nicholas Crane *
I for one will never look at the British countryside in quite the same way again. -- Stephen Moss * Countryfile Magazine *
Gooley can show the most moonstruck how to interpret their surroundings. Even the intrepid Bear Grylls could learn a trick or two from this book. * The Times *
Anyone interested in walking out of doors at any time would be well advised to read this excellent book. * The Royal Institute of Navigation *
As with his earlier, equally important The Natural Navigator , this text is densely packed with information, engagingly and clearly written ... Every outdoor-lover should have at least one Tristan Gooley book in their library. He's attained national treasure status, as useful and educative as he is endearingly unique. -- Jim Perrin * The Great Outdoors magazine *

“Remarkably dull”

I'm 100 pages in and have so far been told, over and over, that trees lean away from the wind and many plants prefer sunny slopes.

The "outdoor clues and signs" are surely only new to people who have... More
