[July 2017] Waterford Press Announces New Solar Guides Waterford Press announces two new guides just in time for the total solar eclipse in August 2017! The Night Sky (2nd Edition) includes GLOW-IN-THE-DARK charts to the stars and constellations, and introduces the reader to the solar system, our moon, planets, meteor showers and eclipses. The Moon provides simplified reference to the moon's surface features, phases, eclipses, and myths. Included are viewing tips and detailed maps of the prominent craters, mountains ranges, seas, highlands and manned moon landing sites. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Zoologist Jim Kavanagh has made a career out of introducing novices to plants, animals, the sciences and world cultures. In addition to creating over 500 simplified nature guides, he has also authored guides to languages, cities and outdoor skills. An avid traveler and backpacker, Kavanagh's path has taken him around the world to many remote destinations including the upper Amazon, Africa, Australia, and the Arctic Circle (and this is just the As). He is also the author of a series of state-specific guides to common species and natural attractions and a children's book on evolution.www.waterfordpress.com

"Dark December nights make for the best star viewing deep in the heart of Texas. I finally understood constellations in just one night, thanks to "The Night Sky," a glow-in-the-dark guide you take outside to help you find the sparkle in the sky. Power it up with your flashlight, then head out to view Orion, Canis Major and Andromeda. I've had lots of overworked guides that have just confused me, but this one is simple and just right. I'll be flipping it over in no time for the summer sky view. Waterford Pocket Guides open a new world of science, nature, travel and language."--Darragh Doiron, Newpaper/Blog "The Port Arthur News & Sounds Good Blog "
