Review:

'The small size of this attractive new series launched by Cicerone will make them very suitable for carrying on the hill. All are well illustrated with colour photos, sketches and map, and have solid plastic covers.This book is is packed full of information and advice, using diagrams to keep the text short. All necessary techniques are covered, from understanding maps to night and bad weather navigation.A plastic romer, map scales and timing chart inside the back cover are also very handy for newcomers to the hills.'(Irish Mountain Log / Summer 2007)
