How many of us today can accurately identify the stars and constellations, the phases of the moon, or the hour and position of the sunrise? Few modern city-dwellers can, but for our forebears such knowledge was crucial.
"People and the Sky" explores the history of mankind's intimate relationship with the sky, and how the lives of our ancestors were cosmically grounded. This erudite and engaging book will be a fundamental resource for students and scholars as well as being gripping reading for a general audience.
