About this product
- DescriptionSTAR TRAILS Navajo offers you a different way to look at the night sky, through Native American eyes. The Dine, or Navajo people of the American Southwest, have their own set of star figures and legends to describe the sparkling lights we see on Father Sky. Come explore the stars from a new perspective. Included are star maps, revised planet visibility charts, references to other cultures' star lore, and tips for enjoyable viewing.
- Author BiographyThe author grew up in Burlington, North Carolina, but spent many nights in remote backcountry campsites in the Uwharrie and Appalachian Mountains with fellow Boy Scouts and other friends. Since then he has been fortunate enough to spend nights under the stars in many remote locations, including the White Mountains of New Hampshire, the Sierra Nevada Mountains of southern California, on Mount Rainier in Washington State, and in the Brooks Range in Alaska. After earning a Civil Engineering degree and a Professional Engineer's license, he combined his curiosity and a desire to create with his organizational skills to write a trail guide book for the Uwharrie Lakes Region in central NC. Star Trails: Navajo is his second book. In addition to tenting under the stars, he also enjoys running, backpacking, mountain biking, canoeing, sea kayaking, and rock climbing. Most recently, adventure racing has allowed him to bring skills from many of these outdoor activities together with navigation challenges in a team challenge environment. He also enjoys the company of a special group of friends known as the Adventure Family, with whom he often escapes from the world of work and civilization to enjoy the simple beauty of great camaraderie, great food, and amazing wilderness locations. When not out adventuring in the wilderness, he can usually be found in front of a computer working for a living, or planning more trips. The author lives in Cary, NC with his wife Sandy, and daughters Lainey and Lauren.
