About this book

The late Bernard Heuvelmans, author of On the Track of Unknown Animals founder of the science of cryptozoology and explorer, researcher and writer on the subject presents the complete account of his revolutionary and pioneering work on the great creatures of the deep ocean. His narrative weaves together the historical and literary sources on which much of our knowledge still depends, the mythologies which have invested these creatures with such fascination, and scientific findings by the author and others.

"This is a compelling volume on a remarkable subject... This book will be an excellent addition." -- Mark K. Bayless, "Quarterly Review of Biology"
