Summary

1925. With 19 illustrations and diagrams. From the Books on Popular Science Series. Among writers for boys on science, easily the most skillful is Mr. Gibson. He writes so clearly, simply and charmingly about the most difficult things that his books are quite as entertaining as any ordinary book of adventure. Mr. Gibson has a first-rate scientific mind and considerable scientific attainments. He is never guilty of an inexact phrase-certainly, never an obscure one-or a misleading analogy. We could imagine him having a vogue among young folk akin to that of Jules Verne. Contents: A Trip to the Moon; An Alarming Adventure; What the Moon Really Is; A Strange Thing Happens; About the Different Shapes of the Moon; How Does the Moon Stick Up in the Sky?; What Makes the Tide Go Out and Come In?; Our Nearest Neighbors in Space; A Curious Planet and a Giant One; Are there People Living on Mars?; Of What is the Sun Made?; More about the Sun and Moon; About the Stars; How we Photograph the Stars; and A Birds-eye View.
