Our fascination with dragons has a long history, but what do we really know about these breathtaking creatures? Despite our growing curiosity, dragons have remained over the years mysterious, relegated to an accesory role to the knights who battled them. Now, however, dragon expert Montse Sant dispels the mystery surrounding dragons, and with the consummate skill of illustrator Ciruelo Cabral, brings us into a secret world which seems both fantastic and familiar.

In The Book of the Dragon, you'll find every aspect of the dragon's history explored, from its physical and psychological traits, to its social organization and its manifestations in art and literature. Sant expertly catalogues the different types of dragons, together with their physical attributes and patterns of existence, and also provides a tour of the creature's trail in literature, from the ancient Greek legends of the Golden Apples and Jason and Medea to the more recent legends created by J.R.R. Tolkien and Ursula K. LeGuin. Throughout the book, Ciruelo Cabral's outstanding illustrations vividly capture the dragon's perilously enticing and multifaceted nature. The Book of the Dragon allows you to enter more fully than ever before the fascinating world of ancient and recent mythologies. It will appeal to everyone who admires and is interested in these beautiful beasts.
