Product Overview

In the days before cell phones and global positioning systems, knowing how to find your own way in the wilderness was a necessary skill. The Wilderness Route Finder, first published in 1967, was the popular resource for anyone traveling into the woods who wanted to be able to find their way out again. Now this essential book is available again in a handy paperback edition.

As more and more people seek to simplify their wilderness experiences and return to traditional camping methods, Rutstrum's simple, straightforward, and dependable methods can be appreciated anew. Rutstrum focuses on the tried-and-true techniques that have served wilderness travelers for generations: how to use a map, a compass, a sextant, and the sun and stars. He explains why we sometimes get lost and what to do when it happens.

This is a valuable traveling companion for anyone wishing to hunt, fish, explore, camp out, or simply walk through unfamiliar territory.
