The Dreams of Dragons: An Exploration and Celebration of the Mysteries of Nature
Prowling the edges of science with insight and sensitivity, Lyall Watson maintains that there is a truth to be found behind every seemingly impossible legend. The best-selling author of Supernature and Gifts of Unknown Things, Watson takes us on a journey through prehistoric burial sites on the beaches of South Africa, ancient ritual iron mines in Swaziland, and present-day villages in Indonesia and New Guinea inhabited by man-eating dragons and headhunters. In these and other extraordinary travels we encounter phenomenon that defy traditional scientific explanation. Watson looks beyond the scientific "facts" and helps us--through his own remarkable discoveries--to see the poetry and wonder of the natural world.

another amazingly eye-opening book of essays by Lyall Watson, a man with a sense of humor despite his genius. the last essay explains in a beautiful way the overwhelming compassion, understanding, and deep interpersonal awareness of a society of cannibals. Read full review
