The Dangerous Book for Cartographers

 


Image: Amazon.com

The other week I picked up The Dangerous Book for Boys for my son, Bear (though not entirely for Bear).

I was ecstatic to see that it is packed with geographic and mapping explanations.  Are you kidding?!  I get to read to Bear at bedtime about how Latitude and Longitude works; how to navigate with a compass and a map??  Too good to be true.

Not since the Age of Exploration has a mastery of cartography and geography meant such serious business to all of mankind.  That’s my kind of danger.
