Tristan Gooley - Wild Signs and Star Paths

The internationally best-selling author of How To Read Water, Tristan Gooley is a navigator and explorer who has led expeditions on five continents, flown solo and sailed single-handed across the Atlantic and lived with Tuareg, Bedouin and Dayak people in some of the most remote places on earth. A pioneer of natural navigation, in Wild Signs and Star Paths Tristan explains the connections between flora and fauna, the landscape and the weather, showing how it is possible to achieve a level of outdoor awareness that will enable you to sense direction from stars and plants, forecast weather from woodland sounds and predict the next action of an animal from its body language.

I enjoyed my festival event in Dorchester very much. What a friendly welcome the audience gave me! Good luck with future festivals -- and well done.

Feedback From 2019 Festival

My wife and I really enjoyed our first visit to DLF to hear Henry Bloefeld. Having looked through the programme further we wished we should have chosen more, but at least we shall try to get the books via the Library. Looking forward to seeing next year’s programme.
