Included here are methods for orienting yourself by the sun and the stars alone, easy-to-follow explanations of map and compass techniques, and advice on using an altimeter. There?s also a comprehensive section on using GPS technology--without becoming dependent on it. Exercises at the end of each chapter help readers gradually develop their skills and build their confidence.
