About this item

In How To Read Water, natural navigator Tristan Gooley unlocks the hidden secrets of water, the world’s most abundant—yet remarkably little-understood—resource. Distilled from his vast and wide-ranging experience with water in all its liquid forms—from his far-flung sailing adventures, encounters with Omani tribespeople, and wild swimming off England’s coast, to canoeing in Borneo and walks in his own backyard—Gooley shares knowledge, skills, tips, and useful observations to help you navigate and appreciate the landscape around you. You will learn:
  • How to find your way with puddles
  • How to identify lighthouses with the aid of elephants
  • How to read the sea using ancient Viking methods
  • How to spot dangerous water in the pitch black with the help of a clock face 
  • How to interpret ponds like a Polynesian
  • How to decipher patterns on beaches
From streams, ponds, puddles, rivers, oceans, waterfalls, and more, How To Read Water reveals the many ways to read the water all around us.
