Description

"In his eye-opening books The Lost Art of Reading Nature's Signs and The Natural Navigator, Tristan Gooley helped readers reconnect with nature by finding direction from the trees, stars, clouds, and more. Now, he turns his attention to our most abundant--yet perhaps least understood--resource. Distilled from his far-flung adventures--sailing solo across the Atlantic, navigating with Omani tribespeople, canoeing in Borneo, and walking in his own backyard--Gooley shares hundreds of techniques in How to Read Water,"--Amazon.com.

This is a good book about water and the environment it functions in this world. Beaches, rivers, coastlines, tides ,sailing, currents, and the exploration and peopling of Pacific Island are among the subjects covered. It's filled with factoids, which I appreciate, but do not make for flow through reading.
