Summary
Recounts a few of the tales that the ancient Greeks and Romans composed around star formations as they searched for clues about life here on Earth. Presents the tale of the great hunter Orion and explains his placement in the heavens, along with his faithful hunting dogs and the animals he hunted, and who hunted him. In addition, students learn of the origins of the bear constellations Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, and of the vanity that put a queen named Cassiopeia high into the heavens
