By Pete Hawkins

Owning a compass isn't everything. Knowing how and when to use it is! Contrary to what many walkers think, using a compass is straight-forward and easy to learn. This practical guide will help you get the most out of your map and give you the key skills to using your compass. It's then down to you. As with any skill, knowledge isn't enough. Practice will make perfect, and with that will come the freedom and confidence to enjoy our hills and mountains. Pete Hawkins is a qualified mountain leader, freelance journalist and the author of "Map and Compass" published by Cicerone. He writes the monthly navigation column for a leading walking magazine. This work provides information on: why to use a map and a compass; map essentials - scale, grids, and contours; map symbols and contours; walking with your map; choosing your compass; taking a bearing; taking bearings from ground; walking with your map and compass; route planning; what to do at night or in bad weather; and, new technology - GPS and computer mapping.

The book includes a handy navigational aid plastic card with map scales, pace chart and time chart.
