Finding Your Way Without Map or Compass door Harold Gatty. In de wildernis zonder kaart, kompas of GPS? Wanneer u dit boek bestudeert heeft staan uw kansen er heel wat beter voor. Engelstalig. 288 blz.
Immensely useful, highly instructive manual for would-be explorers, hikers, bikers, scouts, sailors, survivalists—anyone who enjoys exploring the outdoors. Today’s adventurers will learn how to find their way in the wilderness, in towns, in the desert, in snow-covered areas—even on the ocean—by observing birds, animals, weather patterns, vegetation, shifting sands, patterns of snow fields, and the positions of the sun, moon and stars. Clearly, precisely and graphically explained by one of the world’s great navigators.
This book is an example of why books are great. The knowledge contained in it would be largely lost or very difficult to compile had the author not taken the time to publish it. He spent his life learning various methods of navigation around the world from many cultures: cultures not assimilated to the modern or western world.
