A small, attractive book, a kind of field guide to the stars...the test takes up astronomy old and new, with brief stories of the constellations...short subjects, from the Crab Nebula to black holes and gravitational pulses.

This fine little book covers some astronomy, some mythology, and some Polynesian navigation. All well written on a non-technical level. It includes excellent monthly star maps. Each constellation is described as they appear monthly. A great little book to have on board to enhance your star gazing underway.

When you are out sailing across an ocean you will have a wonderful wide perspective of the night sky. You cannot help but wonder some about the stars and other things that are out there. This book is a good way to start looking into these matters. Well done at a good price.
