Finding Your Way Without Map or Compass
Life in the woods invites a keener awareness in all of us and over decades of research and adventure, Harold Gatty elevated this awareness to an art, assembling what is easily the most exhaustive and engaging book ever written on wilderness pathfinding.
From the shape of anthills, to the color of clouds, to the habits of sea birds, Gatty’s methods of navigation are diverse and ingenious, each one a tiny reminder of how clearly the natural world speaks to us, if we’re willing to listen.
