In this timeless classic, William Tyler Olcott details the constellations and highlights objects easily seen with the naked eye or binoculars. First published in 1907, A Field Book of the Stars also includes facts and information not found in today's astronomical works. As such, it provides a fascinating historical perspective that's sure to be of interest to both beginners and more experienced amateur astronomers alike. *Includes the original charts and diagrams, plus images of the deep sky objects mentioned in the text. From the Introduction:"Considering the ease with which a knowledge of the constellations can be acquired, it seems a remarkable fact that so few are conversant with these time-honored configurations of the heavens. Aside from a knowledge of "the Dipper" and "the Pleiades," the constellations to the vast majority, are utterly unknown. To facilitate and popularize if possible this fascinating recreation of star-gazing the author has designed this field-book. It is limited in scope solely to that purpose, and all matter of a technical or theoretical nature has been omitted. The endeavor has been to include in these pages only such matter as the reader can observe with the naked eye, or an opera-glass. Simplicity and brevity have been aimed at, the main idea being that whatever is bulky or verbose is a hindrance rather than a help when actually engaged in the observation of the heavens."

This little book is essentially an effort to explain more fully myself and my forebears to my children; Abby Strongin Cherner, Laurie Goldberg Strongin and Andrew M. Strongin, to their children, and to interested others up and down the line as long as these pages hold together. I have been extraordinarily fortunate to have spent much time with my grandparents, Max and Fanny Strongin and Ben and Rose Guld. They all survived my 26th birthday, and I don't want their histories to be completely lost. My children ken my parents, Sol and Miriam Strongin, but there is much more about them too that I feel they should know better, or perhaps, for the first time. Thinking and writing about my life and times has occasioned much laughter and not a few tears. This book could be much better even though it entertained me considerably and made me fell sad, but in a most loving way. I talked too much about some parts of my experiences and perhaps too little about others. Many of the photographs are placed in a helter-skelter way within and without the text. But I finally had to let go, and let go I did. Read, learn and smile. And, children, don't worry about forgetting any of this. It's all saved in your blood.

This comprehensive guide covers over 200 species of shallow water seastars found in Australia, how to identify them, where they live, what they eat, when and how they reproduce, and many other fascinating aspects of their biology.

Sea stars are amongst the most common and conspicuous invertebrates that thrive in the rich waters of the Pacific Northwest, from northern California to southeast Alaska. Worldwide there are more than 2,000 different species, but no other temperate region has a greater variety and abundance of these colourful and often very large echinoderms, which are closely related to sea urchins, sea cucumbers, brittle stars and feather stars. An underwater photographer, journalist and naturalist with over 40 years of diving experience, Neil McDaniel provides many original field observations to accompany his remarkable images of these fascinating animals. This durable, water-resistant 8-fold field guide describes how to identify more than 30 species likely to be encountered by beach walkers and scuba enthusiasts in the Pacific Northwest. It also provides intriguing details about their behaviour, including how they move about, hunt for prey, reproduce and avoid predators. It is an ideal companion for family explorations to the sea shore, an invaluable reference in any scuba diver's kit bag and a useful addition to the home library.
