Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The classic map and compass navigation guide—revised for the age of GPS

"Required reading for the beginner in map and compass work, as well as for those interested in serious orienteering. In simple, clear, concise terms the basics of map and compass work are described and illustrated."
–George T. Hamilton, Appalachia

GPS devices are great, but they can break, get lost, or easily be hampered by weather conditions or physical obstructions. That's why basic map and compass skills remain essential for anyone who spends time outdoors today. This popular, easy-to-use handbook has been helping people find their way for more than fifty years. Updated with current Web site information, photographs, and more, it covers traveling by map alone, by compass alone, or by map and compass together. It features:

  • Clear, concise instructions for using a map and compass effectively
  • Exercises to help you learn and practice your orienteering skills
  • An introduction to the basics of competitive orienteering
  • Useful references for fur ther information
  • Tips on using your GPS device in concert with map and compass techniques

If you're looking to feel more comfortable in the wilderness, this book will teach you the skills you need for safe outdoor navigation for hiking, hunting, or just for fun. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

The late BJÖRN KJELLSTRÖM was a Swedish champion in orienteering who loved to share his passion for the outdoors. His writings on the subject have been published in several languages. He helped invent the modern protractor-based compass and cofounded the internationally renowned compass company Silva. He is credited with introducing orienteering to the United States. He was also one of the founders of the Swedish and U.S. Orienteering Federations.

CARINA KJELLSTRÖM ELGIN developed her love of nature and of orienteering by literally following in the footsteps of her father, Björn Kjellström, on daily childhood excursions. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
