If you're looking for a little bit of constellation lore, this is an enjoyable read.
It was after reading the above in the early part of the book that I realized that it was a children' book, so I gave it to friend's son to read. He will get a great kick out of it.
Most of us are at least vaguely familiar with the Greek constellations and can recount some information about Orion or the Big Dipper, but how many of us know anything at all about the equally fascinating myths and legends that emerged on our own continent?
Read this book, and your night sky will be changed forever. You'll look up to find Rabbit Tracks, the Coyote Star, and Man with Feet Apart. They are excellent company, and we owe Childrey a debt for preserving them and bringing them to our attention.
His words and illustrations link us to the Pathway of Departed Spirits-whether they be the ancient Navaho dreamers or the author's own departed friend, Bill Medlin, to whom the book is dedicated.
It's a book that will appeal to both casual stargazers and hard-core enthusiasts.
