Editorial Reviews

Mike Lynch's StarWatch guide to Washington State teaches readers the basics of locating Cassiopeia the Queen, Orion the Hunter, Perseus the Hero, and the other constellations. Like the other user-friendly books in this state-by-state series, it also offers pointers on looking for "celestial goodies" such as star clusters, nebulae, and other galaxies.

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
The Kitsap Sun (WA), Dec. 25, 2005 (circ.: 35,500) “An inviting new book. Despite the high-flung subject matter, Lynch writes in a down-to-earth style. The inspired presentation extends to the book’s production: It was published as a hardcover with a hidden spiral binding for easy use in the field.”
