About this book
A fascinating exploration of how voyagers found their way long before the days of Google Maps and Sat Navs.
Long before GPS and Google Earth, humans traveled vast distances using environmental clues and simple instruments. What else is lost when technology substitutes for our innate capacity to find our way? Illustrated with 200 drawings, this part treatise, part travelogue, and part navigational history brings our own world into sharper view.
