Preview of The Lost Horizon
The Vanishing Art of Navigation by Captain Chris Couch.

The early first mariners were master observers of their environment. The first elements of navigation as we know it probably started in the Mediterranean with trade between emerging civilizations. The lighthouse and many shore based visual aids to navigation owe their beginnings to this area.

Although basic piloting along the coastline was used, there would have been many times these ancient mariners would have been out of sight of land. This is where their unique observations of the winds, seas and stars came into play to get them safely back to port.

The Lost Horizon gives a basic understanding of the vanishing art of navigation.
