A must-have book for walkers, sailors, anglers, swimmers, photographers, artists and everyone interested in the natural world, How to Read Water unlocks the hidden secrets of water. Tristan shares knowledge, skills, tips and useful observations from his experiences of wild swimming in Sussex, to canoeing in Borneo to reveal the secrets of ponds, puddles, oceans and more to help you enjoy the landscape, and gives you the skills, tips and observations to help you understand the water around you.
Tristan set up his natural navigation school in 2008 and is the author of the award-winning and bestselling books, The Natural Navigator (2010), The Walker's Guide to Outdoor Clues & Signs (2014) and How to Read Water (2016), three of the world’s only books covering natural navigation.
He has appeared on TV and radio programmes in the UK and internationally, including The Today Programme, Night Waves, Countryfile, BBC Stargazing Live, Country Tracks, Ramblings, Open Country, Shipwrecks, The One Show and All Roads Lead Home.
Tristan is a global authority on natural navigation and has led expeditions in five continents and climbed mountains in Europe, Africa and Asia. He is the only living person to have both flown solo and sailed singlehanded across the Atlantic and is a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Navigation and the Royal Geographical Society.
‘Gooley, who has single-handedly been reviving natural navigation in this age of GPS, has the birdwatching skills of Bill Oddie and the deductive powers of Sherlock Holmes. He can make you feel that you've spent half your life walking about with your eyes only half-open. He does it again with this fascinating guide to watching and interpreting water, everywhere from the garden pond to the Pacific.’
‘The goal of the author is to have his readers never look at water the same way after reading this book. He has certainly achieved his objective and I doubt I will now ever be able to walk past a lake or even a pond without checking for surface patterns.’
