Illustrated with colour photographs & maps. From the cover: “AIMED at all those who wish to find their way on land, from the novice on the local common to the alpinist venturing into the mountainous regions of the world, this new book is primarily written for those travelling on foot although the techniques are equally applicable to the cyclist, the horse rider and those using canoes and boats on inland waterways. Starting with the fundamental skills required for normal country or town and progressing through to advanced techniques in wild and mountainous country, each Chapter is lavishly illustrated with explanatory line drawings and superb colour photos. Although this is a book to learn from, and acquire the art of navigation, it will also be of assistance in Outdoor Education Centres, Colleges of Higher Education and Schools as the range of the subject matter, and the style of presentation, will benefit all those who have a responsibility for teaching others.”
