Description

Long before GPS and Google Earth, humans traveled vast distances using environmental clues and simple instruments. What is lost when technology substitutes for our innate capacity to find our way? Illustrated with 200 drawings, this narrative-part treatise, part travelogue, and part navigational history-brings our own world into sharper view.
