Epigraph
“It glows above our mighty sea-laved isle,
Changing and flick’ring in the arch of God,
Where miles and miles of grassy levels smile,
And where the unsung pioneers have trod.
Alpha Centauri! See the double star
That gleams as one above the smoke-drift cloud,
Above the groves of Redwood and Bethar,
Or where the checked Pacific thunders loud.
Star of my home! When I was a child,
Watching, and fearful of the coming years,
You bade me learn the story of the wild,
You bade me sing it low to stranger ears!”

– From the poem “Alpha Centauri” by Mabel Forrest, (1909)
Dedication
The book is dedicated with appreciation to musician Ian Anderson and to all of the assembled minstrels and vagabonds that have contributed to the making of Jethro Tull. Their numerous musical adventures have accompanied, enthralled, and challenged me through many years of listening, and for this, I am grateful.
First words
It was a clear and windless winter's evening in early July when this author first saw α Centauri.
