Could you please include in this example a field that is declared in SalesForce as a Lookup field? Knowing how to map a simple field is easy, once the process is understood. But in real life, there are very few tables that do not include lookups, and there is not any documentation anywhere that effectively demonstrates what you have done here, but that also includes lookups.
