"Its unique, simplified maps not only make constellations easy to find but also help locate the stars within them. Without having to use a telescope or other astronomical equipment, readers can gauge the sizes and separations between constellations, and easily move from one to the other, by simply following the book's clear instructions. In addition, the ancient myths and legends surrounding the constellations, are retold, providing a rich historical perspective." Astronomical Society of the Pacific
A Walk Through the Southern Sky is a beautiful guide to pathways in the night sky. Its unique simplified maps and clear instructions make it easy to find by eye the constellations and stars within them, to gauge sizes and distances, and move easily between constellations. Ancient myths and legends of the sky are retold. Magically illustrated by Wil Tirion, this is an ideal introduction to launch the young astronomer on a journey across the starlit skies.

It also covers basic mythology of the Southern Skies and makes an excellent companion to it's sister work on the Northern Skies.
If your more interested in deep sky objects of the Southern skies you'd be better off looking elsewhere as this book only lightly discusses DSO's.
