The Ancient Art of Landfalling in the Pacific
The second edition of David Lewis’ classic book on Pacific navigation again promises to satisfy scholars and seafarers alike – as well as all others who have marvelled at the ability of island mariners to navigate hundreds of miles of open ocean without instruments. The new edition includes a discussion of the theories on traditional methods of navigation that have developed during the past two decades. It also looks at the story of the renaissance of star navigation throughout the Pacific, and includes material on navigation systems in Indonesia, Siberia and the Indian Ocean.
