August is Eclipse Month, so what better way to celebrate than by reading a fabulous book about the Great American Eclipse of 1878. It was the US government's first big foray into the science business, the zenith of the superstar status of scientist icon Thomas Edison, & the first opportunity modern astronomy would have to use equipment--& understanding--that had never been available for previous eclipses. An informative, compelling & timely read.
