Lindorms, Thylacines, and Biographies.... Oh My.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Cryptozoology A-Z: The Encyclopedia of Loch Monsters, Sasquatch, Chupacabras and Other Authentic Mysteries of Nature (Paperback)
A quintessential compendium to zoological mysteries and the people who search them out. A compilation of histories and biographies of the enigmatic inhabitants of the Earth and those past and present who evaluate their possible existences.
Loren Coleman and Jerome Clark join together once again (their first joint book venture in two decades) to bring a human face, and an understanding of the fundamentals of cryptozoology. Combining biographies (and autobiographies in some cases), reports of various mystery animals, word coinage, and general history of major zoological discoveries, this encyclopedia offers the first time reader an idea of the mystery. For the seasoned researcher or informed reader, the book offers them a quick reference guide to better known and lesser-known mystery creatures (cryptids). Although not all encompassing, the encyclopedia does allow for a nice overview of the subject matter.
Perhaps one day an expanded full reference encyclopedia will be written. Until then the "Cryptozoology A to Z" condensed version, and similar styled books will have to suffice.
