Lake Monster Mysteries: Investigating the World's Most Elusive Creatures
For centuries, eyewitnesses around the world—from America to Africa, Argentina to Scotland—have reported sightings of dark, mysterious creatures in area lakes that surface briefly, only to quickly disappear. While the most famous lake monsters of Loch Ness and Lake Champlain have gained international notoriety, hundreds of lakes around the world are said to shelter these shadowy creatures. Lake Monster Mysteries is the first book to examine these widespread mysteries from a scientific perspective. By using exhaustive research and results from firsthand investigations to help separate truth from myth, the authors foster our understanding of what really lurks in the cold, murky depths. Benjamin Radford and Joe Nickell are considered to be among the top lake monster authorities in the world. Here they share unique insights into many of the world’s best-known lake monsters. They interview witnesses and local experts and discuss the different types of lake monster sightings, delve into possible explanations for those sightings, and examine hoaxes, evidence claims, and legends surrounding the monsters. The authors have also conducted groundbreaking fieldwork and experiments at the lakes and have examined recent photographic and sonar evidence. Incorporating newly-revealed information and up-to-date developments in the cases they present, professional monster hunters Radford and Nickell plunge into both the cultural histories of these creatures and the scientific inquiries that may hold the key to these mysteries.

I have been cut by memphrie's tail and he has come after me a few times when I am in the water I look like a fish because I have freckles I know that he is in this lake because when my family and I where out on the boat he jumped out of the lake and swam at our boat because he wanted to eat me.
I have witnesses he is really there
Ben and Joe have their minds made up ahead of time. Not a very subjective look at a fascinating subject. Check out Zarzynsky's Champ- Beyond the Legend if you want to read about the 300 sightings that are ignored by the not so Dynamic Duo. If you want to read about how the Mansi photo is a stick, this is the book for you. Woo-Hoo !
