When most of us go for a walk, we tend to rely on only our sense of sight. But when New York Times bestselling author and expert navigator 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. In this guide, Gooley introduces readers to his world, unlocking the marvels of the sky, sea, and land. Fifteen exercises help to sharpen all of your senses to fully experience the wonders of nature. (This book may contain a small, black sharpie mark on the bottom edge so that it cant be returned to a different wholesaler.)

About Microcosm Publishing

Portland's most colorful, authentic, and empowering publishing house and distributor, Microcosm Publishing equips readers to make positive changes in their lives and in the world around them.

Microcosm emphasizes skill-building, showing hidden histories, and fostering creativity through challenging conventional publishing wisdom with books and zines about DIY skills, food, bicycling, gender, self-care, and social justice.

Microcosm has lived in milk crates, in closets, in a mudroom, in a windowless basement, in a church, and under a desk at a major credit card company. We've brought our brightly colored books to infoshops, zine fests, media summits, bicycle conferences, parks, street corners, house shows, dirty bars, all­night coffee shops, art museums, and every corner of the mainstream where we can clear away a little space to set up shop. We set out to save ourselves from not caring, but out there in the margins we've found communities worth always doing it better for.
