5.0 out of 5 stars Author's Insights: From Cryptids to Exciting Bios, 23 Mar. 1999

This review is from: Cryptozoology A-Z: The Encyclopedia of Loch Monsters, Sasquatch, Chupacabras and Other Authentic Mysteries of Nature (Paperback)
JOIN THE ULTIMATE QUEST FOR THE WORLD'S MOST MYSTERIOUS CREATURESDid you know that in 1992 a new species of quadruped called the saola, the largest mammal to be discovered since 1937, was found in the Vu Quang Forest of Vietnam? Did you know that until New York socalite Ruth Harkness brought Su Lin out of the jungles of Tibet to the United States in 1937, that the existence of the giant panda still remained a mystery? Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, Abominable Snowman-these are the names of the elusive beasts that have caught the eye and captured the imaginations of people around the world for centuries. Recently tales of these "monsters" as well as an increase in the numbers of sightings has elevated these creatures, and many others like the saola and the giant panda, from the shadowy world of legend and footnotes in travelogues to the subjects of cryptozoology-the study of hidden animals.Cryptozoology A to Z, the first encyclopedia of its kind, contains nearly 200 entries of cryptids (the name given to these unusual beasts), new animal finds, and the explorers and scientists who search for them. Loren Coleman, one of the world's leading cryptozoologists teams up with Jerome Clark, esteemed editor and author of several encyclopedias, to provide many never-before-published entries, drawings and photographs from eyewitness' detailed accounts. Full of insight into the methods of these scientists, exciting tales of discovery, and the history and evolution of this field, Cryptozoology A to Z is the most complete reference ever of the newest zoological science.LOREN COLEMAN, a forty-year veteran of cryptozoological field expeditions and research, has written several books on nature's mysterious creatures, including The Field Guide to Bigfoot, Mysterious America, and Tom Slick and the Search for the Yeti, and has served as both on-and-off camera consultant to NBC-TV's Unsolved Mysteries and A&E's Ancient Mysteries. He is a university professor in Maine and lives in Portland. JEROME CLARK, author of several respected encyclopedias on the history of natural phenomena, including the award-winning Unexplained! He lives in Canby, Minnesota.
