916mjsOIAOL

Journalist M. R. O’Connor seeks out neuroscientists, anthropologists and master navigators to understand how navigation ultimately gave us our humanity. O’Connor goes to the Arctic, the Australian bush and the South Pacific to talk to masters of their environment who seek to preserve their traditions at a time when anyone can use a GPS to navigate. Kirkus Reviews says, “There are many reasons why people should make efforts to improve their geographical literacy, and O’Connor hits on many in this excellent book―devouring it makes for a good start.” (April 30)
