Staying Found, by June Fleming
Staying Found is a small, 150 page book, now on its third edition. It includes a good section on how to use a compass as wells as chapters on using maps, route planning, and teaching kids how to not get lost. The compass section has some good practice tips and exercises for beginners.
Fleming’s presentation is clear and concise, and is clearly aimed at the beginner. I would recommend this book for younger outdoor enthusiasts who are concerned about getting lost in the wilderness and looking for an introduction to the subject. It is also an affordable reference guide for occasional backpackers who would like to refresh their knowledge before a trip.
