Once thought to be the preserve of a slightly obsessive—some might say wacky—fringe element, cryptozoology (the study of legendary animals) does have its mainstream supporters. In fact, many scientists and zoologists are committed to using rigorous methods to investigate strange creatures from across the globe…and their findings reveal that certain mythological creatures actually have roots in now-verified animals.
Join the quest, using this ultimate field guide. Monster Hunt tracks native tales of unidentified beasts from the Congo to Canada, Dartmoor to Delhi. It includes an all-star continent-by-continent hit list of the world's greatest cryptids—including Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster—and introduces the real science behind cryptozoology, along with its research and documentation techniques. Also: a visit to the Cryptozoology Hall of Fame!
