With extensive footnotes, this book is mostly about dragons; Western, Chinese, and Japanese, although it also covers the Sea-serpent, the Unicorn, and the Chinese Phoenix. The book actually starts off with a discussion of some other earth mysteries: the world-wide flood myth, cultural diffusion, and Atlantis; the cryptozoology material starts at Chapter VI. Translations from rare documents, and historical accounts from newspaper articles, make this a must-have book for anyone interested in this subject.
These books take me anywhere from 2 to 10 hours to create. Only a tiny minority of people donate (less than 1%), yet thousands of books are downloaded every day. There is no big company behind this site – it is just me, and I really need the support of my visitors to help keep this site running. So if you feel I have helped you by providing this ebook, please consider making a small donation payment of £1.00 or whatever you can.. Thanks – Julie 🙂
