Constellation Finder: A guide to patterns in the night sky with star stories from around the world



A guide to patterns in the night sky, with star stories from around the world. People around the world, and through the centuries, from the ancient Egyptians to the Pomo of California, have given names to the patterns they see in the night sky. The latest book in the Finders series of pocket guides introduces constellations from many cultures, and shows how to find them in the sky. With hints for stargazing, seasonal star maps, and constellation profiles; heavily illustrated by the author.

Most useful for stargazing between the 30th and 50th parallels in the northern hemisphere. In North America, this includes the contiguous United States (except the Florida peninsula and southernmost Texas), and southern Canada. Also includes southern Europe, Turkey, northern China, and Japan.

Part of the Nature Study Guides (NSG) series.

Day and Overnight Hikes: Kentucky's Sheltowee Trace
Johnny Molloy


   The master path of the great Bluegrass State, the Sheltowee Trace graces 282 miles of Kentucky hills and hollows. This path was the 100th designated federal national recreation trail and is named in honor of Daniel Boone. Sheltowee, meaning Big Turtle, was the name given to Boone when he was adopted into the Shawnee tribe as the son of the great war chief, Blackfish. While being pursued by the Shawnee, Boone hid beneath the waters of a creek, breathing through a reed "straw," thus earning his nickname. Hikers who tread this trail will be "following the turtle," a white turtle blazed on trees, from the trail's southern terminus in Tennessee's Pickett State Park, north through the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. The trail continues through the length of the Daniel Boone National Forest nearly to the state of Ohio.

    Complete with detailed maps, elevation profiles, and detailed descriptions of the trail, author Johnny Molloy's Day & Overnight Hikes: Kentucky's Sheltowee Trace is the ultimate resource for all levels of hikers. Each day and overnight hike described provides valuable information such as trail length, condition, difficulty, and clear directions to the trailhead. Whether it's a day hike along the Cumberland River, an overnight trip in the Daniel Boone National Forest, or an all-out assault on the entire 282 miles, all hikers will need and appreciate the first-hand information gathered and presented by Molloy.

Day and Overnight Hikes: Tonto National Forest
Tony Padegimas


    The Tonto National Forest in central Arizona is one of the largest (2.8 million acres) and most popular (approximately 6 million visitors a year) forests in the United States. Within this territory, visitors find six separate ecosystems from Sonoran desert lowlands around Phoenix to pine forested mountain peaks, all part of the convoluted topography that left this area one of the last in the west to be truly settled. Parts of it are specifically unsettled, for the Tonto includes eight designated wilderness areas including one of the largest in the country (Mazazatl Wilderness) and one of the most popular (Superstition Wilderness).
   
    Much of what is really worth discovering in the Tonto National Forest can only be reached by foot. Wilderness boundaries and the sheer ruggedness of the terrain mandate that visitors get out of the car and lace up their boots to explore the numerous high peaks, deep gorges, babbling river beds, near silent deserts, hundred year old mining camps and thousand year old native American settlements scattered widely across this vast national forest. Winding through all of these rugged wonders are more than 900 miles of trails. This guide follows the best of them, representing each of the Tonto’s unique areas.

    Some are well known, such as the Highline trail, which winds across the 2000’ escarpment of the Mogollon rim for 79 miles, or the Lost Dutchman trail through the wild and weird Superstition Mountains. Some are known only by numbers, or faint lines on old maps. While the Highline Trail offers panoramic vistas of the entire Tonto Basin, Jacob’s Crosscut Trail offers a vista of metropolitan Phoenix. Other hiking trails tunnel through thick brush or squeeze through claustrophobic slot canyons.

    Many of these trails are as obvious as sidewalks, but a few are trace routes marked only by instinct and an occasional pile of rocks. Whether you’re looking for an easy hike to show your relatives from back east what real cactus looks like, or an epic journey through the backcountry that will test your feet and your nerves, this guide can tell you where to start, and what to expect.

Dream Hikes Coast to Coast

Dream Hikes Coast to Coast
Jack Bennett


    Dream Hikes Coast to Coast has been years in the making. Jack Bennett, in his extensive travels throughout America, has always wondered which hikes were the very best our country had to offer. So in April of 2000, he began his quest to identify and hike the finest hikes in America. He sent out hundreds of surveys, conducted on-line forums, and carefully compiled the results. He then traveled the breadth of America to hike and qualify the hikes that had been proposed. Sometimes the hikes met expectations, and sometimes they did not. After seven years and thousands of miles of travel, Bennett narrowed the list to 30. What qualifies a hike to be one of America's "best"?

    Each hike in this book follows a maintained, or at least well-established trail, each is non-technical, and although some are long, each can be achieved in a single day. But much more than this, each hike is significant in its beauty or its impact. In a word, each hike is in some way memorable. The author shares with the reader the intimate details of each hike, not just routine directions and statistics, but how the hike looked and felt; what weather and animals were encountered; the emotional impact of every event and panorama. Each hike is accompanied by a map that shows the trailhead, route, significant features, and topographic landmarks.

    Key points along the way are located. Weather, native wildlife, camping, lodging, fees, and contact information are presented for each hike. The book also includes valuable advice and information about hike preparation and safety, how to plan for weather extremes, animal encounters, accidents, stream crossings, fatigue and other factors.
