Product Description

Book Description

A new era of exploration is dawning...

Product Description

Tristan Gooley, author of THE NATURAL NAVIGATOR demonstrates how it is possible to connect profoundly with the lands we travel through. In THE NATURAL EXPLORER he combines the work of the some of the most insightful travellers of the past two thousand years with his own experience.

The most rewarding travel experiences do not depend on our destination or the length of our journey, but on our levels of awareness. A short walk can compare with an epic journey, when we take the time to focus on the things that dramatically enrich each journey.

Exploration is no longer about hardship or long distances, it is about celebrating the sense of connection and discovery that is possible in all our travels.

I would just like to add to the praise already garnered for this book. Unlike many others I wasn't totally convinced by The Natural Navigator, I enjoyed it but thought it tried to shoehorn too many disparate elements into it. This book on the other hand is a total pleasure and convinces in a way that the plethora of gung ho/try and get as many miles in as you can/further, faster, longer sort of books don't for me. I don't see the point in trying to knock off a twenty mile walk if you don't take the time to see what is going on around you, whether this is totally natural, partly as a result of man's intervention or indeed almost totally man-made (the field system for example. This book contains the ideal justification for slowing down, paying attention to what is going on around you, and probably knocking a few miles off any planned walk you choose to do. I also like the idea that it need not be enjoyed just by the serious "walker" but by anyone who can find for example, a snatched 5 minutes waiting in your car at traffic lights to look, smell and listen to what is going on around you. If you do this you might be surprised and this book should be your inspiration to try.
