  Pole Star. By Clare K. R. Miller. Noemi can’t trust her teachers, she can’t trust history, and she certainly can’t trust her family. She puts her faith in her friends and traveling companions—and her mother, who left her nothing but magical powers and a mysterious book. When the government takes her into protective custody, she hopes to.   Stargazers are familiar with the concept of the "pole star". In particular, they know about the north star, with its formal name of Polaris. For observers in the northern hemisphere and parts of the southern hemisphere, Polaris (formally known as α Ursae Minoris because it's the brightest star in the constellation), is an important navigational aid.

She grew up in :   Under a Pole Star is a well written novel of love, loyalty, intrigue and inequality in a harsh, cruel yet beautiful landscape. Overall 4/5. (Plot 3/5, Characterisation 5/5, /5(). Under a Pole Star is a much bigger book than I have read for some time at over pages, but I loved every page of it.

Stef Penney returns to the frozen settings she described so convincingly in The Tenderness of Wolves. I was quite surprised to learn that, like me, she is from Edinburgh.

I was sure that she must have been from the cold places /5. #42 in my bookclub AROUND THE YEAR IN 52 BOOKS was “THE CAPTAIN OF THE POLE-STAR” (a book that takes place on, in, or underwater) by ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE. I read this Kindle book while listening to the audible version narrated by B.J.

HARRISON/5. Read reviews of all the Pole Star books and how to read Pole Star in order. Book 1 in the series is Yam Festival. At nearly pages, UNDER A POLE STAR is a richly detailed saga, with a complex plot that seesaws between Flora and Jakob’s lives in England and America, and their exploits on the ice.

Penney brings out the contrast between late Victorian mores and Inuit culture, as well as offering an emphatic indictment of the many ways so-called civilized. A pole star or polar star is a star, preferably bright, nearly aligned with the axis of a rotating astronomical body.

Currently, Earth's pole stars are Polaris (Alpha Ursae Minoris), a magnitude-2 star aligned approximately with its northern axis, and a pre-eminent star in celestial navigation, and Polaris Australis (Sigma Octantis), a much dimmer star.

The book "is mostly about the claim of a Megalithic era discovery of axial precession, and the encoding of this knowledge in mythology" (quoting wikipedia article). One interpreter of scripture opined: "When the pole star changes, which happens about seven times ev years, anciently that change was called 'A New Heaven'.".

The ‘Plough’ rotates anti-clockwise about the North Star, so it will sometimes appear on its side or even upside down. However its relationship with the North Star never changes and it will always dependably point the way to it.

The reason the North Star is so important for natural navigation is that it sits directly over the North Pole. Under a Pole Star by Stef Penney,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.
