Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A guide to patterns in the night sky, with star stories from around the world. People around the world, and through the centuries, from the ancient Egyptians to the Pomo of California, have given names to the patterns they see in the night sky. The latest book in the Finders series of pocket guides introduces constellations from many cultures, and shows how to find them in the sky. With hints for stargazing, seasonal star maps, and constellation profiles; heavily illustrated by the author.

Most useful for stargazing between the 30th and 50th parallels in the northern hemisphere. In North America, this includes the contiguous United States (except the Florida peninsula and southernmost Texas), and southern Canada. Also includes southern Europe, Turkey, northern China, and Japan.

Synopsis:

From the Finders series: Learn to find and identify constellations, the patterns people all over the world see as we look up at the night sky from earth. Includes names and star stories form many traditions, including Native American, Asian, and African, as well as Classical Greek, constellations. With tips for stargazing and seasonal sky maps.
