Description: This book is about our three-thousand-year-long journey from navigational infancy (setting out from a harbor in a sailing craft, navigating by the Pole Star and landmarks) to maturity (setting out from Times Square in a cab, navigating by GPS). It describes not only the astounding feats of seamanship and of determination in adverse circumstances of the early explorers, sailors, and conquerors, but also the technical advances made by them, and by many others behind the scenes, who developed the science of navigation.
