    This review is from: The Natural Navigator: The Rediscovered Art of Letting Nature Be Your Guide (Paperback)
    This book will not turn you into a natural navigator after you read it. A s some reviewers wish it would. Rather it is a book that teaches you how to teach yourself to navigate without gps or compass, etc. It takes work, lots of it. And this book shows you how to get there. Its similar to the kamana program. Your not gonna be a naturalist just by buying and reading the material once and thats it. But you WILL if you work the program. Can you learn this stuff else where? Of course you can. But since we bought this book, we obviously are in need of finding this information. To sum it up, the book is excellent, but you have to work hard to get the benefit.

    The most useful book for anyone who ever leaves the city and paved roads., October 31, 2015

    This book is one of my favorite books of all time. This is the stuff you discuss on a camping trip, and despite discussing it at length, no one can quite remember the actual facts and rules of thumb that actually get you through. This is ancient wisdom we have lost. Could you sail across the ocean without modern devices and find your way? Could you hike miles and days through the woods with cloudy skies and find your way? People have done this for literally ever, yet we have all lost this ability in modern times. The usefulness of the stars might have been what originally interested humanity in them, rather than what they really are. Sand dunes, snow drifts, moss, puddles, stars, the sun, and even city buildings can all be used by us to get our bearings. I highlighted this book, then wrote notes in a little carry booklet of my own to take with me. This is invaluable information, all in one place.

    Bought this book for my grandson who is starting in the scouting program. Wanted him to know that navigating in the woods involves more that knowing how to read a compass or GPS device. This book addresses this concept very well.
