Overview

A Field Book of the Stars (Illustrated) by William Tyler Olcott

The table of contents shows the scheme of study to be pursued, and to facilitate the work it is desirable that the student follow the therein circumscribed order.
A knowledge on the part of the reader of Ursa Major, or "the Dipper" as it is commonly called, and "the Pleiades," the well-known group in Taurus, is presupposed by the author.
With this knowledge as a basis, the student is enabled in any season to take up the study of the constellations. By following out the order dictated, he will in a few nights of observation be enabled to identify the various configurations making up the several constellations that are set apart for study in that particular season.

I really liked this book. It gave me information on the stars and the constellations and where to look. But i think it would help if you had a planisphere with you (look up on google). It can be a little boring but has good information. It gives u pictures on the constellations and has some stars labeled. If u wanted easy pictures and to the point, get another book because this book gives mostly information but u are welcome to try it. :)
