Is just one of the things you’ll learn in this book! If you’ve even the slightest interest in navigation and not getting too lost, then reading Finding your way without map or compass should be something you’ll enjoy.


The book was first published in 1958 but that doesn’t detract from the information it contains … after all, the mountains, stars and rivers are still where they were 53 years ago. Reading the book is a little like a navigation history lesson but much more entertaining. There’s examples and explanations of how your surroundings can help you get where you’re going and back again without ever needing look at a map, compass and certainly nothing electronic. More importantly the book will also help you look at your surroundings properly rather than just pass through them, regardless of whether you’re trying to cross Australia or you’re walking to work, it should give you a different perspective on what’s around you … highly recommended.
