For a generation, the Basic Essentials series has been as much a part of the outdoors experience as backpacks and hiking boots. Information-packed tools for the novice or handy references for the veteran, these volumes distill years of knowledge into affordable and portable books. Whether you're planning a trip or thumbing for facts in the field, Basic Essentials books tell you what you need to know. Using the Basic Essentials GPS you can discover how to leave an electronic trail to find your way back, store the coordinate addresses of important locations, use your GPS receiver in conjunction with a map and compass or navigate the GPS market and find the receiver that suits you best.
