About this item

From the New York Times–bestselling author of How to Read Water—an exploration of our subconscious ability to “know” our surroundings even when we can’t explain how

Master outdoorsman Tristan Gooley has long encouraged his readers to look closely at the world to discover its hidden clues. Through careful cultivation of our senses, we can use the Big Dipper to tell time, for example, and a budding flower to find south.

In The Nature Instinct, we learn how to train ourselves through slow observation so that, ultimately, we can intuit the inner workings of the world around us without having to stop to think about it. In other words, readers learn how to develop an instinct for reading nature the way Gooley does. Discover how Gooley and other expert observers—from hunters in the English countryside to the Pygmy people in the African Congo—have recovered this lost sixth sense that unlocks a subconscious, deeper understanding of our surroundings. In this, the culmination of everything Gooley has written so far, you’ll learn how to find the forest’s edge when deep in the woods, or when a wild animal might pose danger—and you won’t even have to stop to think about how you know it.
