Kevin sums up his approach to navigation as follows:

“Successful navigation should be simple and straightforward, and when done correctly, it will enhance the pleasure you get from the outdoors, not detract from it.”

His book reflects this view and is a concise and practical explanation of how to find your way in mountains and moorland. Everything you need to know is here, from map reading to navigating in poor visibility. Simple descriptions alongside clear illustrations help the reader to put Kevin’s advice into practice, and master the knowledge and techniques needed to navigate in all conditions.

    Excellent book. Clear. Concise. Easy to understand and follow. Many books of this sort are too technical and hard to follow for the beginner. Kevin Walker’s book is first-class taking you through navigation techniques in an easy to follow way. Highly recommended.
