About the Author

Pete trained as a geography teacher and taught in schools for a year before escaping to the Peak District National Park's Environmental Centre for an outside job. He took over map and compass training by default and over the years has taught more beginners how to read a map and compass than there are hairs on his head. He has written for a variety of outdoor magazines, has worked for the BBC as a local radio reporter and leads walking holidays around the world for his own company, Peakland Walking Holidays, and others. Pete is author of Map and Compass also published by Cicerone.


'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)
