A delightful blend of serious meteorology and beautiful illustrations, this informative book displays the many talents of Eric Sloane. A writer, landscape painter, weather forecaster, and authority on early American history, Sloane takes readers with him on a voyage of discovery as he traces a single air mass from the Canadian Rockies to northern New England. A vivid narrative and the author's own pen-and-ink sketches describe the progress of the air mass over America, and tell about its encounters with other elements of weather systems and with Americans from a variety of backgrounds.

My dad turned me onto Sloane. I love satisfying my craving to learn something that I'll never use, and would never learn in school, but which is still interesting. It's especially interesting because Sloane's own passion shines in his writing. Read full review

Review: Look at the Sky and Tell the Weather

User Review  - Amy - Goodreads

I enjoyed it. The reading is easy but it was hard to follow a few times. I will probably have my younger kids read this as a free read before Eric Sloane's The Weather Book, maybe in 5th or 6th. Very good examples of how the weather affects us, and gentle encouragement to watch the skies. Read full review
