When writer and navigator Tristan Gooley journeys outside, he sees a natural world filled with clues. The roots of a tree indicate the sun’s direction; the Big Dipper tells the time; a passing butterfly hints at the weather; a sand dune reveals prevailing wind; the scent of cinnamon suggests altitude; a budding flower points south. To help you understand nature as he does, Gooley shares more than 850 tips for forecasting, tracking, and more, gathered from decades spent walking the landscape around his home and around the world. Whether you’re walking in the country or city, along a coastline, or by night, this is the ultimate resource on what the land, sun, moon, stars, plants, animals, and clouds can reveal—if you only know how to look!

KAYAK CHARLESTON GUIDEBOOK
16238-14100Regular price $18.00 Save $0.00
I wrote this guidebook because there was no detailed guide to finding public boat landings, working with the tides and planning kayak trips in the Charleston area. The guide provides details needed to find public boat landings even if signs are down. It explains how to use the tides to receive maximum ease and enjoyment from various trips on the rivers. It provides planning tips and estimated times for trips on the rivers and ocean areas within one hour of Charleston. I have personally visited all the boat landings and made all the trips noted in the guide. This book would be extremely useful for all new paddlers, as well as the more experienced ones who should branch out on the trips they take.
