In the Shadow of the Moon: The Science, Magic, and Mystery of Solar Eclipses

Author Anthony Aveni goes to superb lengths to paint a historical background for eclipses. In the book you’ll learn about religious imeanings and anthropological ties towards eclipses, the chasers that follow them, and even the behaviours animals exhibit during them.

Starting with early accounts of eclipses, Aveni describes eclipses’ influence on early man all the way up to the modern lessons we’ve learned about eclipses and our sun.

Aveni’s writing is clear, concise, and doesn’t bore with what some might call a boring topic.
