Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"As a good start and a basic primer, Fabian goes a long way toward encouraging student interest and broad research in this human fascination with reaching toward the stars and beyond."

Format: Paperback
In Patterns in the Sky, Stephen Fabian presents us with a unique and practical guide to the sky as we see it--with the naked eye. But besides this, he also provides us with information about how living American Indian peoples in North, Central and South American interpret and interact with this observable phenomena, which gives us a deeper understanding of human diversity and intellect. This is an outstanding text, anyone interested in naked eye observation of the cosmos and American Indian interpretations of celestial phenomena should read this book.

Format: Paperback
I was very happy to find and read this book. It offers a nice trip, showing the different meaning of the heavens for different peoples. We are going to forget about the nightsky and this book, while introducing "different skies", helps discovering that those wonders do not have only a scientific importance, but also a cultural one.

It is a joy to find out what other people, far away from our own city, think about the same celestial objects, like the sun, the moon, the planets and so on.

I would recommend this nice book to those looking for a journey to the sky through different cultures. A nice reading.

Show a different meaning of the heavens for different peoples in earth. The "different skies" but probably with the same essence. It helps discovering that those wonders do not have only a scientific importance, but also a cultural being for understand our soul.

Recommend this light book to those looking for a journey to the sky through different cultures and nice for beginners researchers. A nice reading.
