Long recognized as one of the seminal volumes on the fundamentals of map, compass, and altimeter route finding,Outward Bound Map & Compass Handbook, 3rd Edition now includes the latest information on GPS receivers, complete with all new color illustrations. This concise guide features practical advice on choosing the right compass, reading and using topographical maps, using altimeter to pinpoint your position, and mastering the GPS. It also helps you steer clear of the most common route finding errors and passes on an array of tips drawn from Glenn Randall's rich store of experience in the wild. Whether you're looking for a beginner course on outdoor navigation or want to sharpen your skills before heading back into the wilderness,Outward Bound Map & Compass Handbookwill prove invaluable.

Since 1979, Glenn Randall has combined his love of the wilderness with his passion for photography to create stunning landscape images. His intimate knowledge of atmospheric optics, weather conditions, and the landscapes he photographs allows him to find an intersection between magical light and stunning subject matter, which results in exceptional images. Glenn's work has been included in calendars for Audubon, Avalanche, Barnes & Noble, Brown Trout, Sierra Club, Nature Conservancy, and Runner's World. His images have been published in Audubon, GEO, Outdoor Photographer, Outside, SKI, Los Angeles Times Magazine, National Geographic Adventure, New York Times Magazine, and many others. His photographs have also been used by book publishers and corporate clients. At age 56, he has accumulated nearly 1,200 photo credits, including 73 covers, and sold over 10,000 prints. Glenn has authored 200 magazine articles and nine books, including two books of landscape photographs: Rocky Mountain National Park Impressions and Colorado Wild & Beautiful, both published by Farcountry Press. He recently completed a seven-year project called Sunrise from the Summit, in which he shot the sunrise (and occasionally the sunset) from the summit of all fifty-four Colorado Fourteeners (peaks over 14,000 feet).
