In this guide, map reading is explained at a simple level so that those with no previous experience of using map can gain knowledge in an easy, step-by-step way.
Simple Map reading shows that maps are friends and partners in the enjoyment of outdoor life, and not sheets covered with strange symbols which cannot be understood. The book also looks at basic compass work. Read the book and your ventures into the great outdoors will be transformed.
