For anyone who enjoys walking, mountaineering, canoeing, skiing, sailing or mountain biking, it is important to have a sound grasp of key techniques for maintaining a route under any possible condition, day or night, fog or snow. This compact, easy-to-use handbook provides clear advice on navigation methods, both for a fully equipped journey and in emergency situations.

Beginning with such navigation fundamentals as understanding maps, how to use a compass and GPS, How to Track and Navigate goes on to teach how to navigate without a map or compass, reading the sun and stars, navigating in extreme weather conditions, marking trails and signalling. Apart from following a route, the book looks at following a person or animal, teaching how to track and trail.

Every procedure is demonstrated in step-by-step diagrams that clearly outline what to do and what not to do in order to bring you safely to your destination.
