LOOK AT THE SKY by Eric Sloane


Email this review


Eric Sloane's Almanac and Weathercaster (1955) alerted the neophyte to the eccentricities of weather. And this provides yet another approach to that subject about which we- presumably- can do nothing. He is angling his topic to the air mass bubbles that influence weather- and to that end has collected stories and experiences and impressions of a motley assemblage of people whose everyday lives direct their attention more than commonly to the sky. A bush pilot, a guide, a priest, a parachuter, a flier, a sign painter, an airline pilot, a bird watcher, a farmer, a doorman, a drover, and last but not least, a sailor- each with his tale, his philosophy, his particular awareness of the phenomena. The market will be limited- but appreciative.
