Synopsis: A Walk through the Heavens is a guide to the pathways of the sky. It contains unique, simplified maps of the constellations and instructions on how to measure their sizes and the separations between them. Using this information you can find the constellations very easily and take a mind's eye journey from one constellation to its neighbours. The ancient myths and legends surrounding the constellations are retold, enriching our understanding of how historical peoples saw the awe-inspiring spectacle of a sky sprinkled with stars. Magically illustrated by Wil Tirion, this book does not assume that the reader has binoculars, and is ideal to inspire the young astronomer just starting out on a journey across the starlit skies.

Book Description: Take a journey across the starlit skies with A Walk through the Heavens. With magical illustrations and simplified constellation maps, this handbook is ideal for the young astronomer without binoculars. The ancient legends behind the constellations are also beautifully retold.
