Book Description

March 11 2005
Voyageur Press is proud to publish this new edition of Eric Sloane’s classic folksy history of American weather. Combining two Sloane books, "Eric Sloane’s Almanac and Weather Forecaster" (1955) and "Folklore of American Weather" (1963), this omnibus is filled with traditional weather sayings and beliefs. In "Eric Sloane’s Weather Almanac," readers will learn forecasting tips such as which winds bring what kinds of weather, how to ""read"" clouds, how to foretell the weather by the moon, and more. Also included is fun climate lore such as old-time sayings about when sap is running and why you should dig your well where lightning has struck. One hundred thirty-five of Sloane’s drawings clarify and enhance the text of this entertaining and informative book by one of the most popular recorders of American history. Before Eric Sloane (1905-1985) became famous for paintings and books, he was one of the top weather experts in the United States and wrote several books on the subject for the U.S. Navy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eric Sloane's Weather Almanac June 28 2006
By Looking skyward - Published on Amazon.com
Mr. Sloane writes a week by week review noting how the seasons and the weather change as the year goes by. Mr. Sloane also notes how the weather affected early American life by the things he sees and finds while restoring his 1782 Connecticut home. The author rambles at times which simply adds to the interest of the book and gives some insight into the author's life.

Also included is some weather folklore, and the scientific background to prove or disprove some of the old sayings.

An interesting and easy to read book, a must have for anyone interested in weather or early American life.

This is a great old fashion book on weather. My children and I are on our second time through the book.
We read it once a week throughout the year to learn about what we may expect in weather. It is so amazing how accurate this Almanac is. We love Eric's stories about old barns and tools as well. It is a great resource.
We highly recommend this book for anyone who wants a basic understanding on how to read the clouds and know its weather.
