Humanity has always been fascinated by the mysteries of the moon. Its enigmatic cyclical changes have made observers ponder and dream, have inspired poets and scientists and story tellers. This fascinating compendium draws on lunar science, myth, folklore and poetry from around the world to examine the pull that the moon continues to exert on the minds of the people who gaze at it. This beautifully packaged and easy-to-read collection gathers together such diverse information as a comprehensive list of animals traditionally linked to the moon, facts and figures about lunar geography, and prayers and invocations traditionally addressed to the moon from around the world, and much more. Both inspiring insight into ancient beliefs and lore, and practical guide to understanding its strange power and meanings, this will appeal to anyone who has ever wondered and wanted to know more about the moon.
