Product Description

From the Back Cover

"The Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, the 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" have been corroborated by an increase in sightings, and out of these legends a new science has been born: cryptozoology - the study of hidden animals."--BOOK JACKET. "Cryptozoology A to Z, the first encyclopedia of its kind, contains nearly two hundred entries, including 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, editor and author of several encyclopedias, to provide these definitive descriptions and many never-before-published drawings and photographs from eyewitnesses' detailed accounts. Full of insights 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."--BOOK JACKET.

Format: 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.

CRYPTOZOOLOGY A-Z is a terrific one-volume overview of the subject of "hidden animals" and the people who investigate their existence. Not only is it a good starting point for those new to the field, but it will delight the experts too, as Coleman and Clark have scattered much new material throughout the book on such subjects as the coelacanth and the pygmy elephant. A warning to the reader, however. Like the well-known brand of potato chip, the entries in this book, of which there are nearly 200, are so enlightening and enjoyable that you won't be able to read "just one." My two thumbs are way up.--Editor, The Anomalist.

In their most recent collaborative effort, "Cryptozoology A to Z: The Encyclopedia of Loch Monsters, Sasquatch, Chupacabras, and Other Authentic Mysteries of Nature", authors Loren Coleman and Jerome Clark have shed a much-needed light on an often misunderstood field and its personalities.
At once both compelling and fascinating in its detail and broad scope of coverage, "Cryptozoology A-Z" is destined to become the spark which kindles the imagination of a whole new generation of inquisitive minds. With biographies of the giants and not so giant in the field, past and present, as well as descriptions of cryptids both well-known and obscure this book is a fascinating tribute to an often maligned scientific realm.
It will surely be frequently referenced for years to come. Bravo.
