A Guide to Naked-eye Observation of the Stars

Norman Davidson

Softbound

Profusely illustrated

This is the astronomy course I always wanted to take, but could find! Davidson takes us outside, has us look up at the starry wonder overhead, and then tells us what we are seeing. In the process, he also treats us to myths, legends and history, and even includes a whole chapter of poetry about the stars! Wonderful!
