Acquainted with the Night by Christopher Dewdney
Only Christopher Dewdney could mine the darkest pools of lore, legend, natural history, science, cultural history and the arts to recast the seemingly commonplace aspects of an ordinary night into a magical and exhilarating nocturnal tour.Using an original hour-by-hour structure that follows night s progression from 6:00 pm to 6:00 am, Dewdney explores and celebrates a single representative night at each point on the clock.
