Why are dragons recognised in almost all cultures on Earth?

What is the mysterious geomantic gold they secretly guard?

Could dragons be a folk memory of something which once hunted us long ago?

In this beautiful book, author and illustrator Joyce Hargreaves tells the story of these extraordinary animals through examples drawn from all over the world.

Richly illustrated, and with detailed appendices of noteable dragon sites around the United Kingdom, this is an essential book for all dragonologists.

Review by

Whilst not to be taken too seriously, this book is a rare delight that combines sustainable materials, whimsical fantasies and wonderful knowledge. It is the everlasting question that we may never fully realise; why are dragons universally known? One would suspect dinosaurs had something to do with it.
