/ Navigation books - suggestions for present
I'm after recommendations for a good navigation book as Xmas present - for my better half who's starting to get into mountain running/events etc.
I think there's an update version now and you can get it as an ebook...
The best I've seen by a long way.. trailguides booklet was weak..
Cheers Ian - have downloaded (will print for present).
Anyone got any other must-have suggestions?
TBH I'd recommend the Hillwalking book, for general nav
Book wise, none nav, Feet in the Clouds is an obvious classic, a sort of history of fell running and his experiences as a mid pack runner in various events and then the BGR attempts..
but then there's also
and a new one is run wild..
Which gets mixed reviews..
If they want routes to run by far the best guides are currently in Scotland..
Some excellent routes in there, and the Author is a very experienced..
I've not seen the latest one by Susie Alison?
gets good reviews though..
Cheers Ian, great info and ideas.
She's read the Feet in Clouds (perhaps the others as well, I lose track!) and she also went to see 'Unbreakable: Western States 100' at Castelton YHA this week.
Hillwalking book bought at lunchtime - thanks
