This book was a library copy that was never checked out, therefore, in essence it is a brand new book. I have taken up cloud watching and this is an excellent book for the subject.
I apreciate clouds . and this book about them. Feb. 7 2015

Not just a pretty picture book (though it is that) but a way to learn about the clouds you've loved all your life. Enjoyed by four generations of my family -- and we all learned something new.
