9780138228835: The Soul of the Night: An Astronomical Pilgrimmage
From School Library Journal:

YA A poetic and philosophical approach to astronomy. Raymo reveals the interconnections between the scientific bent, common curiosity and the vast expanse of the universe. Through insights into literature, mythology, religion, history and everyday experiences, the realm of the stars, galaxies, comets and other astronomical happenings become a more meaningful part of human existence. Woodcuts add to the beauty of this book. Readers who enjoy the work of Loren Eisley and Lewis Thomas will find this a thought-provoking book. Mary T. Gerrity, Queen Anne School, Upper Marlboro, Md.

From Library Journal:

Flowery meditations on the nighttime sky and various astronomical objects, by the author of 365 Starry Nights and The Crust of Our Earth . The book is heavily larded with animalian references, typified by ``the open mouths of the galactic black holes.'' Amid all the fluff is some astronomy and science history, but the book is overburdened with a heart-tugging subjectiveness that will endear it only to those who take their science in pablum form. Thomas E. Margrave, formerly with Physics & Astronomy Dept., Univ. of Montana, Missoula
