A fascinating look at weather, The Weather Companion: An Album of Meteorological History, Science, Legend, and Folklore contains a wealth of proverbial and naturalist lore and history.

Throughout human history, we have devised unique ways of observing, predicting, and taking advantage of weather. You'll learn about the meteorology of Noah's flood; methods of forecasting; the behavior of weather cycles; weather predictors such as the thickness of corn husks, the height of saw grass, and the behavior of animals; weather prophets; and much more. Writer Gary Lockhart reveals what makes rain "smell," how natural barometers work, and the long history of weather fish, once kept to predict rain, and revived during China's Cultural Revolution. Beautifully illustrated, captivating and original, The Weather Companion is a delightful book. Great off-season reading!
