Despite Pluto's recent controversial demotion from planet status, its discovery by an amateur astronomer working at the privately- owned Lowell Observatory still captivates the imagination. Minard, a science journalist based in Flagstaff, Arizona, the home of the Observatory, traces its history and continuing contributions. Illustrations include photos of Lowell astronomers and recent color space images. The book includes a bibliography but lacks an index. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
