Reviews

The Natural Explorer by Tristan Gooley is a call to enrich our travel experiences through connecting with nature - essentially a greater awareness of our surroundings... Chapters include the sky, the earth and time - and as someone who can get around the Tate in about half an hour, I paid particular attention here.
<i>Evening Standard</i>
Discover a whole new world... a journey through the intricate, detailed and often-missed sides of a walk.
<i>Wanderlust</i>
... Tristan Gooley knows a thing or two about adventure... this is in part a history of exploration, but also a practical guide.
<i>London Planet Magazine</i>
A charming and intelligent guide to exploring the local landscape.
<i>Financial Times</i>
Gooley tells fascinating tales of scientific wonder and geographical discovery. Each themed chapter, complete with illustrations, maps, diagrams and literary quotations, stand alone as a mini-museum in tribute to exploration... he reads the landscape with genuine perceptiveness...
<i>Times Literary Supplement</i>
[THE NATURAL EXPLORER] is an essential part of any outdoor/nature-writing library and it's full of wonderful examples of how to read, understand and connect with the landscape.
<i>Country Walking</i>
Using poems, diary entries and letters from nature lovers of ancient Rome to the present day, Gooley has written the perfect book to take out walking - and it would be a crime not to find the time to see, and smell, the roses.
<i>Daily Mail</i>
Praise for NATURAL EXPLORER
