3. Book of the Month - How to Read Nature
Being present and observing the things around us is becoming harder and harder to do. How to Read Nature: Awaken your Senses is a short book which teaches us how to better pay attention to the nature around us.
We compile the books we feature every month in our Book Store.
While this book is not a 'how to' in terms of reading nature to follow the movement of animals, or predict the weather, for example, it is a good motivator and reminder to slow down and observe the natural places we explore. As the author is from the UK, some specific examples pertain to the English countryside, but the broader message applies to nature everywhere.
"When most of us go for a walk, a single sense-sight-tends to dominate our experience. But when New York Times-bestselling author and expert navigator Tristan Gooley goes for a walk, he uses all ﬁve senses to "read" everything nature has to offer. A single lowly weed can serve as his compass, calendar, clock, and even pharmacist.
In How to Read Nature, Gooley introduces readers to his world-where the sky, sea, and land teem with marvels. Plus, he shares 15 exercises to sharpen all of your senses. Soon you'll be making your own discoveries, every time you step outside!"
