Add my review for Wilderness Navigation : Finding Your Way Using Map, Compass, Altimeter, & Gps

Book description:

*Covers tools and skills for orientation, navigation and route-finding *Gives particular attention to off-trail navigation with altimeter and GPS *Appendix offers 30 practice problems "So ah . . . where do you think we are?" While you may never have asked this question, there are thousands of hikers, backcountry skiers and snowshoers, climbers, fishermen, hunters and forest workers who have. Wilderness Navigation is the concise, focused, and affordable answer to that question. Based on the experience of helping revise the navigation section of the best-selling climbing textbook, Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills, and years of teaching wilderness navigation, the authors have expanded the material in Freedom using the most reliable, dependable, and easy-to-learn methods ever devised. Wilderness Navigation will answer all your questions on reading maps; buying a compass; using a compass, a clinometer, an altimeter, and a GPS; orientation with map and compass; how to avoid getting lost; and what to do if you get lost. It also covers wilderness routefinding on trails, in the forest, in alpine areas, and on snow and glaciers.
