Customer Review

on 6 September 2006
Think of how many books you have read,bought or simply looked at discussing the often confusing art of mountain navigation.

Look no further because this small book in its goodness knows what reprint is one of the easiest and best illustrated companion to map reading and compass work.In very easy to understand and follow language with delightfully simplistic pictures,it is one of the easiest books to grasp an often difficult subject.
It is suited to both novice and mountain guide wishing to teach eager pupils.

It includes grid refrences aswell as aspects of slope which are especially important with contours and differing heights.

In not that many pages this very concise book provides valid information on all the basics of map reading including setting the map,grid refrences,contours aswell as what certain OS symbols mean.

Ask yourself this question "Why is it in its umpteenth reprint"

Thats easy to answer because it is one of the simplest yet most effective books on montain navigation you can read.

If you are confused about what that little needle in the middle of that piece of plastic means or even more confused about what that coloured large piece of paper with pretty pictures actually means THEN THIS BOOK WILL TELL YOU IN VERY EASY TO UNDERSTAND LANGUAGE.
IT WARRANTS A BEST BUY FOR ANY KEEN WALKER UP SNOWDON OR YOUR LOCAL PARK.
