Summary

Summary

Does an ancient monster lurk in the depths of Scotland's Loch Ness? Is this creature the last living dinosaur? What secrets does the mysterious loch hold?

For centuries, an international eye has been focused on Loch Ness and the belief that a creature, "Nessie," lives deep within the isolated body of cold green water. The Loch Ness Monster: The Evidence is the final word on this mystery; a compact but comprehensive review of the principal evidence for the existence of an unknown creature (or creatures) in Loch Ness.

Beginning with an explanation of the origin of belief in the monster, and the myths and deception surrounding the story, this volume surveys the eyewitness evidence, reviews the most notorious reports, as well as photos and instrumental evidence. Steuart Campbell, a scientific skeptic, exposes the falsehoods behind each alleged sighting, explores every new shred of evidence, and discusses the sonar work of the U.S. Academy of Applied Science's exploration. Included is commentary on other such nautical mysteries and sightings in other seas of the world.

The definitive work on the subject, The Loch Ness Monster is a must read for monster buffs and others who've always wanted to know the truth about Loch Ness.
