The study of dragons, or dragonology, is a pursuit which should be taken on only by the most courageous, most dedicated of scientists. It also must be a discipline which is adopted only for the right reasons; that is to further our understanding of dragons and to thus be in a better position to protect them.
Dr. Ernest Drake has collected some extraordinary information in this volume which will be invaluable to the budding dragonologist. The reader will find everything from descriptions of the main kinds of dragons, to accounts of famous dragonologists who have studied and observed these remarkable creatures. Full of fascinating tit-bits of dragon lore, legend, management, and science, this is a volume which will delight both armchair students of dragonology and also those more intrepid individuals who seek to study dragons in the field.
With gorgeous, lavish artwork, maps to pore over, envelopes to open, and a whole new language to learn and use, this beautiful picture book will delight dragon lovers of all ages.
