ABOUT ME: lots of hiking, not so much map and compass reading beyond the "hey that's north" and the occasional "let's find a stream on the map"….. I was on the navigation committee for 13 years, was lucky enough to meet Bob and attend a lecture by him, and usually re-read the book once a year, even though I've been an instructor for years. I still learn from it.
There are some great suggestions above. As someone who has each one of them, I personally prefer this one the most because of it's simplicity and effectiveness: Staying Found: The Complete Map and Compass Handbook. Fleming teaches a method that does not require drawing declination lines on your map, nor do you need to add or subtract when going from map to compass and vice versa.
I appreciate all the helpful input and some current favorites. This will be a good way for a quick study in the basics.
