Description
A fascinating look at weather, including a wealth of unusual proverbial and naturalist lore. Makes the vagaries of the weather comprehensible, from the point of view of naturalists, and both modern and ancient meteorologists. Describes several ""natural barometers,"" and explains the basis of some old-time weather lore. Can one predict rain from the behavior of insects, birds, or other animals? Was there a Great Flood? The author addresses these and many other fascinating questions in entertaining, nontechnical language. Incorporates historical information based on records from past centuries to the present. Illustrated.
