Great tips on how to navigate in the woods with or without a compass. Easy to read and simple without complexity. I am a boater and use a compass for dead reckoning and costal navigation. I still learned much from Fleming.

I purchased this book while visiting a BLM office during a backpacking trip in Utah. I did not need the book, but I occasionally purchase books on navigation for different perspectives on the subject. I was disappointed with the superficial information and lack of guidance a beginner would encounter.
