This is an excellent overview of cross-country soaring skills techniques.  Since it was published in 1974 some of the information about available gliders and instruments is a bit dated, but since most of the gliders mentioned are still good values as used gliders it is interesting reading.  This was the era of the Nimbus II, Cirrus, Libelle, and Schweizer 1-35.
