In the week that Natural Navigator Tristan Gooley’s HOW TO READ WATER becomes a New York Times bestseller, Sceptre has acquired UK & Commonwealth rights (ex-Canada) to Gooley's new book WILD SIGNS AND STAR PATHS: In Search of Our Lost Sense. In his new book, Gooley will show how our ‘sixth sense’ works outdoors, through the practiced ability to make connections and then draw conclusions from all the evidence presented to our senses, without slow methodical thinking.
As Tristan Gooley says: ‘Anyone unfamiliar with this type of thinking may fail to spot a ‘missing’ step and be forced to view this ability as something mysterious, unfathomable. But once the missing step is highlighted, all becomes clear. We have allowed ourselves to become so distanced from this way of experiencing our environment that it may initially seem hard to believe that it is possible. I intend to show how everyone can develop this ability and hence enjoy the outdoors in a new and exciting way.’
Acquiring editor Rupert Lancaster comments: ‘The success of Tristan’s books and the huge audiences drawn to his talks show what an original and inspiring writer he is. We’re very proud to be his publisher and delighted to be part of his on-going quest to make the world of nature and the outdoors more accessible to more people’.
Sceptre will publish WILD SIGNS AND STAR PATHS: In Search of Our Lost Sense in 2018. The Bookbrunch announcement can be read here.
