Summary:

"When most of us go for a walk, a single sense--sight--tends to dominate our experience. But when...Tristan Gooley goes for a walk, he uses all five senses to "read" everything nature has to offer. A single lowly weed can serve as his compass, calendar, clock, and even pharmacist. n How to Read Nature, Gooley introduces readers to his world--where the sky, sea, and land teem with marvels."--Page 4 of cover.
