Description: For centuries, man has passed down stories about strange, unknown creatures inhabiting the forests, lakes and oceans of North America. Witnesses have come forth to sign sworn testimonies as to the truth of their reports. Films have been offered to authorities as the real thing. And yet, no carcasses or live specimens have been found--the search for proof continues. Offering readers of all ages a balance of myth and fact, Monster! Monster! Gives the complete story of creatures alleged to exist in North America. From pre-historic time to the present, from sea serpents to Sasquatch, the author takes readers on a journey examining the arguments for and against the existence of a whole spectrum of beasts. A must read for those who want to know more about monsters--real, half-real or imagined.
