Lost Art of Reading Nature

0 Voted

The Lost Art of Reading Nature’s Signs is a guide book written by British naturalist Tristan Gooley whose aim is to encourage readers to go outside and appreciate the world around them by providing a range of tips that can be used whilst out and about. Although largely applying to nature in Northern Europe, in particular Britain, Gooley presents techniques that can be applied “on any walk in almost any area.”


The book is divided into fifteen different chapters and, as the title suggests, they all cover the way in which you can use the signs offered by nature to determine everything from finding your way when you’re lost to what the weather will do to discovering a water supply. Nevertheless, it is not simply a drab manual or survival guide, as Gooley breaks up the text with anecdotes from his decades of experience as a navigator across five continents, neatly illustrating the theories he presents in practice.


In total, the author shares more than 850 unique tips for understanding nature and using it to help you, whether on just a simple walk or embarking on an excursion to areas far afield. Advice includes how the roots of trees can indicate the sun’s direction, how a butterfly can help you predict the weather and how the scent of cinnamon can indicate altitude.


Gooley also stresses the importance of exercising our spiritual capacities for attention, beauty, being present, connections, hospitality, openness, questing and wonder. Whether a nature-lover or simply someone who just enjoys learning about what the world has to offer, The Lost Art of Reading Nature’s Signs provides a unique read that is guaranteed to offer something of interest, regardless of where you’re from.

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.


Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.


What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.
