That looks interesting and I really liked the opening quote by Pirsig. I read the entire introduction. I wonder why he believes there was some ancient ability of navigation that is lost.
It seems since there were no maps that navigation would've been done more or less in a wandering manner where the traveler is interested in a destination that is better than her present location and that is it. In that case it would seem that there was no intended or specific direction but just a wandering until things got better. However, maybe the ancients did have a way of determining that they weren't going in circles.

Were you able to successfully understand natural navigation techniques from the book?
