Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Throughout the year, as it moves inexorably through its phases, the moon is a source of wonder, inspiration, and knowledge for countless sky watchers. Now In the Light of the Moon, a companion to Carolyn Edwards' popular collection of stories about the winter solstice, presents thirteen lunar tales from around the world. Organized into four sections corresponding to the waxing, full, waning, and dark moons, the book collects stories from Australia, Britain, ancient Egypt, the Maya, Korea, Polynesia, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, India, and the Amazon, among other lands and peoples. By seeking to explain the origins and cycles of Earth's nearest neighbor and our relation to it, each story entertains, instructs, and inspires curiosity about the eternal mysteries of the natural world. Perfect for Halloween and October's Hunter's Moon, In the Light of the Moon's spirited collection of fascinating stories are also wonderful for any time of year.

Synopsis:

Just in time for Halloween and October's Hunter's Moon comes a spirited collection of stories as fascinating as the celestial body that inspired them.
