The classic map and compass navigation guide-revised for the age of the GPS. GPS devices are great, but they can break, get lost, or easily be hampered by weather conditions, making basic map and compass skills essential for anyone who spends time outdoors. This popular, easy-to-use orienteering handbook has been helping people find their way for more than fifty years. Now updated to include information on GPS as well as current Web sites, references, sources, and photographs, it remains the book of choice for professional outdoors men, novice orienteers, and outdoor organizations as well as teachers, scout leaders, recreational hikers, hunters and others around the world.
