Navigation is the key human skill. It's something we do everywhere, whether feeling our way through a bedroom in the dark, or charting a ship's course. But how does navigation affect our brains, our memory, ourselves? Blending scientific research and memoir, and written in beautiful prose, Finding North starts with a quest by the author to understand this most basic of human skills---and why it's in mortal peril. In 1844, Foy's great-great grandfather, captain of a Norwegian cargo ship, perished at sea after getting lost in a snowstorm. Foy decides to unravel the mystery surrounding Halvor Michelsen's death---and the roots of his own obsession with navigation---by re-creating his ancestor's trip using only period instruments. Beforehand, he meets a colorful cast of characters to learn whether men really have better directional skills than women, how cells, eels, and spaceships navigate; and how tragedy results from GPS glitches. He interviews a cabby who has memorized every street in London, sails on a Haitian cargo sloop, and visits the site of a secret navigational cult in Greece. At the heart of Foy's story is this fact: navigation and the brain's memory centers are inextricably linked. As Foy unravels the secret behind Halvor's death, he also discovers why forsaking our navigation skills in favor of GPS may lead not only to Alzheimers and other diseases of memory, but to losing a key part of what makes us human.

C.J. Frost writes a heartfelt, funny and sincere account of how he found happiness and redemption in Finding Your True North. C. J. Frost began experiencing physiological distress after the death of his father. He didn't know where the pain and hopelessness was coming from but it had, throughout his life, left him friendless and alone and in dead-end relationships where he had played and used every woman he was with. As his memory began to become clear to him, he realized he'd been dramatically traumatized as a child. What followed was a exploration that led him into a place of darkness and self-destruction that cost him everything-his marriage, his livelihood and C.J. found himself homeless with no friends and no where to turn. After years of scraping rock bottom, C.J. had an epiphany. He knew he had to turn his life around, not just for him, but for his son. His son became his "True North" and C.J. slowly and painfully began the tenuous path of self-discovery and recovery. Finding an unbridled passion for everyone that is lost, alone and who feel there is no hope and no way out. Frost's inspiring narration will encourage you to reach for and find your own True North, no matter what your life situation or past experiences.

The earliest investigations that can be called scientific are concerned with the sky; they are the beginnings of astronomy. Many early civilizations produced astronomical texts, and several cultures that left no written records left monuments and artifacts - ranging from rock paintings to Stonehenge - that show a clear interest in astronomy. Civilizations in China, Mesopotamia, India, and Greece had highly developed astronomies, and the astronomy of the Mayas was by no means negligible. Greek astronomy, as developed by medieval Arab philosophers, evolved into the astronomy of Copernicus. This displaced the Earth from the stationary central position that almost all earlier astronomies had assumed. Soon thereafter, in the first decades of the seventeenth century, Kepler found the true shape of the planetary orbits and Galileo introduced the telescope for astronomical observations. This book covers the history of astronomy from its earliest beginnings to this point, which marks the beginning of modern instrumental and mathematical astronomy. The work of earlier astronomers, of all civilizations, remains as a triumph of the human intellect.

At the turn of the nineteenth century, even the most experienced mariners were still risking catastrophe when navigating the North American coastline, because they lacked accurate navigational charts. The various means available to chart makers of the era to measure longitude, both celestial and terrestrial, could be off by thousands of feet -- often deadly for ships. In 1807 the U. S. Coast Survey was created to map the coast accurately and reduce the costly and deadly toll of shipwrecks, a challenge that would take the better part of a century to overcome. This is the tale of discoveries made by American scientists as they worked to solve this life-threatening quandary and develop a precise method of measuring longitude. It recounts how the successful coupling of precision chronometers with the new electrical technology represented by Samuel Morse's telegraph produced the solution to the longitude problem. The use of the telegraph by scientists of the U.S Coast Survey to communicate time signals reduced the probable error in longitudinal measurement to less than ten feet. The "American method," as it was deemed, quickly revolutionized observational astronomy and every other branch of science that depended on recording the precise time of an event.
