“Folklore Guide to the Weather” contains a series of folklore saying pertaining to the weather and how to predict and read it. Although there are many such sayings, the ones within this volume are those that contemporarily couldn't be explained by science, but which the author believes are reliable “at least seven times out of ten”. Contents include: “Solar Halo”, “Rainbows”, “Rain”, “Hail”, “Thunder and Lightening”, “Frost”, “Snow”, “Sound”, “Temperature”, “Birds”, “Animals (Quadrupeds)”, “Insects”, “Fish, Molluscs and Reptiles”, “Plants and Trees”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction.

What changes can we expect with global warming? Could the ice caps melt and raise sea levels? Could farmland become desert? Why was it chilly and rainy today when the forecast called for mild sunshine? The atmosphere is an extremely complicated system. Any weather forecast can rapidly change because of the wind, a warm front, or an unexpected storm. In addition, many places around the world have broken their high-temperature records, while many coastal and Arctic communities are already witnessing the first severe effects of climate change. With the help of awe-inspiring photographs, infographics, and detailed diagrams, readers will learn about the factors that determine weather and climate, the difference between them, and exactly why long-term forecasts are so complicated.

America has one of the most varied and dynamic weather systems in the world. Every year, the Gulf Coast is battered by hurricanes, the Great Plains are ravaged by tornados, the Midwest is pummeled by blizzards, and the temperature in the Southwest reaches a sweltering 120 degrees. Extreme weather can be a matter of life and death, but even when it is pleasant—72 degrees and sunny—weather is still central to the lives of all Americans. Indeed, it’s hard to imagine a topic of greater collective interest. Whether we want to know if we should close the storm shutters or just carry an umbrella to work, we turn to forecasts. But few of us really understand the science behind them. All that changes with The AMS Weather Book. The most comprehensive and up-to-date guide to our weather and our atmosphere, it is the ultimate resource for anyone who wants to understand how hurricanes form, why tornados twirl, or even why the sky is cerulean blue. Written by esteemed science journalist and former USA Today weather editor Jack Williams, The AMS Weather Book covers everything from daily weather patterns to air pollution and global warming and explores the stories of people coping with severe weather and those who devote their lives to understanding the atmosphere, oceans, and climate. Words alone, of course, are not adequate to explain many meteorological concepts, so The AMS Weather Book is filled with engaging full-color graphics that explain such concepts as why winds blow in a particular direction, how Doppler weather radar works, what happens inside hurricanes, how clouds create wind and snow, and what’s really affecting the earth’s climate. For Weather Channel junkies, amateur meteorologists, and storm chasers alike, The AMS Weather Book is an invaluable tool for anyone who wants to better understand how weather works and how it affects our lives.

Olympus to the depths of the Underworld, this book takes you on an unforgettable journey through all the major myths born in ancient Greece and Rome, such as Achilles's involvement in the Trojan War; Pluto's kidnapping of the beautiful Proserpina; and the slaying of Medusa by Perseus, the heroic demi-god. You'll also learn all about the wonders of the world as well as the greatest creatures ever recorded in history. Like Charon navigating the River of Wailing, Mythology 101 will guide you through the most glorious (and completely terrifying) tales the ancient world has to offer.
