: The starry night sky has always filled us with wonder. Down through the ages we have looked to the skies and have seen images of our heroes, gods, and monsters. Storytellers have illustrated their mythologies and legends with it, passing on to future generations the customs of their people. Many of these stories have survived to the present. In this Skylore from Planet Earth we explore some of the stories about the star cluster PLEIADES. Since The Pleiades is located almost directly over the earth's equator, people from the entire planet have looked to it for a reminder of their own traditions. Fifteen richly illustrated stories take the reader on a trip around the world, giving a glimpse into the histories and cultures of the planet's early civilizations. Six books in this series will feature other sky phenomena as seen from early cultures around the world. Read stories about the constellation ORION (available now), the planet VENUS, our MILKY WAY GALAXY, the SUN, and the MOON.
