Description: "Every year more people go into the countryside, following outdoor activities on the moor and in the mountains. For these pursuits, or even for a little rural rambling, a good knowledge of the use of map and compass is essential, and yet this necessary knowledge is nowhere as widespread as it should be. To fill this gap this compact book covers all aspects of map reading and direction finding with map and compass; problems are clearly explained and illustrated, and helpful trips drawn from wide experience make this book essential reading. This Spurbooks Venture Guide should be possessed by every rambler, Scout, climber and orienteer."
Illustrated throughout with b&w line drawings, humorous sketches, and reproductions of contemporary maps.
Pictorial covers display negligible wear to the extremities and spine. Pages are lightly tanned; otherwise the book is in immaculate internal condition, and appears to be unread. Super-tight binding.
