Description: Describes how ancient kings and shamans all over the world used their special knowledge of the night sky to rule over their kingdoms and empires. Explains that this celestial knowledge was central to the religions and myths of most ancient cultures, such as their beliefs about how the world was created; the celestial powers that governed nature (like the change of seasons); man's place in the cosmos; and how man could communicate with gods that ruled planets and stars. Describes the rituals each culture developed for worshipping the "celestial powers", and how these rituals led to the field of modern astronomy. Now available in trade paperback.
