Reviews
"In this book of stories, Aveni introduces readers to the diversity of constellation mythologies. An entirely original, vividly written, and totally absorbing book by a world expert."--Simon Mitton, University of Cambridge
"Aveni is the star of his own luminous book: casting light in the form of stories - about the sky, time, earthly correspondences and concerns, and human imagination."--Christopher Vecsey, author of Imagine Ourselves Richly: Mythic Narratives of North American Indians
"Aveni skillfully guides us around the awesome night sky through the imagination of different peoples around the world, past and present. A wonderful treasury of cultural astronomy."--Jacqueline Mitton, author of Zoo in the Sky
""Connections between Earth Mother and Sky Father are universal. The stories in this book are wise and wonder-filled to encourage humility and mindfulness."--Sunny Dooley, Diné Traditional Wisdom Keeper
