Kevin Walker, the author of "Mountain Navigation Techniques" and "The Essential Hillwalker's Guide", presents a beginner's guide to finding your way. His simple techniques give walkers the freedom of the hills, providing them with confidence and a greater appreciation of the landscape. Part One covers maps, mapping and map interpretation, and shows how to use a map to give an incredibly detailed picture of the terrain. Part Two is concerned with compasses and bearings, and explains how simple techniques can give an accurate measure of direction in even the thickest mist. Part Three contains a whole range of additional techniques for use in poor visibility, featureless terrain and other difficult situations. Part Four deals with the real art of navigation - how to work out where you are when you think you are lost.
