The Sands of Time is a series of short stories dealing with both the wildlife of today, prehistoric and ancient cultures, and the history behind astronomy. In this time period, Barbara Silverman writes about unusual animal species, many unfamiliar to the average person. Then traveling back into the past you, the reader, will share the lives of people from long ago. You will listen to animal mythology and see how it affected their daily lives. You will look at the skies through the eyes of these cultures from long ago, listening to their stories and visiting some of the astronomically aligned structures that have been left behind. While, in more modern times there are several stories about various astronomers that helped to shape our knowledge of the stars and planets. These astronomers lived in different times, different places, but united by their love of the stars. The Sands of Time was written for the average reader. Well researched, well written, sometimes with a sense of humour, this book contains something for everyone, whether you are a casual reader or someone looking for in-depth reading, you will not be disappointed.
