How To Find Your Way On Land & Sea. Portraiture frontispiece. From the cover: “Here is a new kind of outdoor book. In this age of great scientific and mechanical progress, man is gradually becoming more and more dependent on gadgets and is in danger of losing altogether the ability to use his natural senses and those powers of observation and deduction which were a matter of life and death to our ancestors. This book provides first a fund of fascinating information about the navigating methods used by men a thousand years ago men whom we choose to call primitive but who in many ways were far greater masters of the art of living. It then proceeds to describe the principles of this almost lost art of natural navigation and seeks to inspire the modern reader to resharpen his blunted senses, pointing to the greatly increased pleasures thus to be derived from life.”
