Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A short exploration of the wonderful world of dragons, both malevolent and benign.

Why are dragons recognized in almost all cultures on Earth? What is the mysterious geomantic gold they secretly guard? Could dragons be a folk memory of something that once hunted us?

In this beautiful little book Joyce Hargreaves tells the story of these extraordinary animals through examples drawn from all over the world. Richly illustrated, and with detailed appendices of notable dragon sites around the United Kingdom, this is an essential and timeless book.
