From the Back Cover:

The second edition of David Lewis' classic book on Pacific navigation promises to satisfy yet again scholars and seafarers alike - and all others who have marveled at the ability of island mariners to navigate hundreds of miles of open ocean without instruments. The new edition includes a discussion of theories about traditional methods of navigation developed during the past two decades, the story of the renaissance of star navigation throughout the Pacific, and material about navigation system in Indonesia, Siberia, and the Indian Ocean.

About the Author:

David Lewis' navigational research has taken him to Central Australia, throughout Micronesia, from Hawaii to Tahiti on the Hokule'a, through Indonesian waters on traditional prahu, to Manus and New Ireland, and among the Alaskan Eskimos and Siberian Chukchi. In 1972-1974 he made the first single-handed voyage to and from Antarctica. Dr. Lewis has received numerous awards for his navigational achievements, including the Gold Medal of the Royal Institute of Navigation, London.
