Back cover of Navigation by R N Phillips

From the back cover of "Rogaining" ...

In two decades rogaining has spread across Australia and around the globe. Hundreds of events have been organized on three continents. All have in common the spirit of participation and enjoyment developed during the birth of the sport in Melbourne. 

The remarkable popularity of rogaining stems from people's enthusiasm for opportunities to walk in superb natural countryside, safely but with many challenges, navigating by map and compass, and sharing these experiences with their team. Novice or expert, everyone will delight in the wealth of experience instilled into this book, including:

Picture a mid-winter Intervarsity 24 rogaine in 1977, a moonless night with dense fog where I learnt much of my rogaining skills from team mates Neil and Rod Phillips.

David Rowlands, World Rogaining Champion 1996, nine times Australian Rogaining Champion

This book is obviously my favourite, not just for rogaining but for the wealth of useful cross-country navigation techniques.

Bob Reddick, Founder of rogaining in the United States

I do remember the pain and wondering how on earth I'd ever been talked into doing such a thing. Then came the second rogaine, the third, the fourth. I got hooked on this unusual sport with an even more unusual name. Rogaining is a tremendous sport because it has something to offer everyone no matter what level of fitness, or navigational skill, and competitiveness.
