I rate this as one of the best SF books written. It is a very small-scale story of a boy whose unique talent - an unfailing sense of direction - brings about a major advance in human history. The writing is excellent - all climaxes are given full value and there is an over-all feeling of warmth and empathy. Without the grandiose scope of van Vogt's "Book of Ptath" or Heinlein's "... Jonathan Hoag", it manages at east as well to bring world-scale matters down to everyday life without losing significance along the way.
