Summary, etc.:
"Learn how to navigate without a compass, even when it seems impossible! Whether we're walking or driving, whether in the woods, on the water, or in the city, it's vital that we know where we are and are able to find our way around. But with society's current dependence on modern tools and technology, many persons would have no idea how to navigate without a compass or GPS. In an emergency situation, that lack of knowledge could easily prove fatal. In Guide to Getting Around without a Compass, survival expert Christopher Nygeres provides readers with all the skills that they may need to navigate naturally. The book begins by describing the meaning of natural navigation, and then moves on to describe, in detail, the methods of natural navigation, including using the sun, the stars, the moon, and shadows. Additional topics include: How to read a map How to make a sun dial How to make a star dial How to use clouds to predict weather patterns How to track celestial changes How to gauge time through natural observation And much more! With helpful diagrams, illustrations, and sidebars, Guide to Getting Around without a Compass is the ultimate reference book for learning how to navigate by natural methods"-- Provided by publisher.
