Description

Ellis, recognized as the foremost painter of marine natural history subjects in America and the author of several books on ocean life, has taken an entertaining look at sea monsters. Here he provides a fascinating analysis of myths, early natural history texts, and other literature to resolve most of these tales in light of biological facts known today. He also includes accurate life history details about the sea animals covered. From the analyses and the biological facts, he describes the literary metamorphosis from monster to live, classified, utilized species.
