"When most of us go for a walk, a single sense--sight--tends to dominate our experience. But when...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."--Page 4 of cover.

An inspiring little book which heartily encourages the reader to engage with nature by looking more closely at their surroundings and by allowing themselves to be curious about what they encounter with their senses no matter how humble. The author convincingly proposes that this endeavor to connect with nature, besides being good for us, can result in truly inspired originality in our thinking and creative ideas.
