    The classic orienteering guide with lots of useful info on maps and compasses Emphasis is placed on real world applications with lots of exercises for practice including answers The second half of the book is geared towards those looking to compete in orienteering events for which the author regularly opines his deeply abiding love and thus isn't essential for mastery of map and compass but I know of no better manual for navigational skills for hikers hunters fishermen and outdoorsmen While the cover says that the new edition contains GPS information it's largely limited to stating that batteries may run out or signal may be lost so one should learn the compass skills as the foundation for GPS skills

    A uick read and solid introduction After participating in an adventure race certain subjects add depth to the experience especially the chapter near the end Hints on Competitive Orienteering For example certain key definitions stand out such as handrails long features that run parallel to your path and catching features which cross your path Next time it would be fun to attempt pace counting on the tricky controls Plus establishing attack points prior to the race start be ideal should time allow
