Tristan set up his natural navigation school in 2008 and is the author of award-winning and internationally bestselling books, which are some of the world’s only books covering natural navigation. He has spent decades hunting for clues and signs in nature across the globe, and has been nicknamed: “The Sherlock Holmes of Nature”. He has written for the Sunday Times, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the BBC and many magazines.
Tristan has led expeditions in five continents, climbed mountains in Europe, Africa and Asia, sailed small boats across oceans and piloted small aircraft to Africa and the Arctic. He has walked with and studied the methods of the Tuareg, Bedouin and Dayak in some of the remotest regions on Earth. He has tested Viking navigation methods in a small boat in the north Atlantic, leading to the academic paper, Nature's Radar. He is the only living person to have both flown solo and sailed singlehanded across the Atlantic and is a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Navigation and the Royal Geographical Society.
Michael Palin said after reading 'The Natural Navigator' 'This in-depth book gives us the tools to re-engage with our natural world in a clear and understandable way. I love it!' Bear Grylls declared it to be 'A definitive volume on the subject'.
