Our Nessie by Priscilla Marden Johnson

Lake Monsters

Lake monsters lurk on every continent.  Nessie is one of the oldest. Stories of sightings on Loch Ness go back 1500 years to the time of Merlin.  Other monsters have first been recorded in the past 100 years. All the monsters seem to be camera shy, but people who have seen them have no doubt they saw a real monster, possibly a dinosaur that survived meteor impacts  and even ice ages.

The Great Sea-Serpent

This is a reprint of A. C. Oudemans' The Great Sea-Serpent, which was originally published by Luzac & Co., London, in 1892. This comprehensive work includes discussion of over 160 sightings of sea-serpents. Hoaxes and misidentifications are also discussed, as are the characteristics and possible taxonomy of this mystery animal. Oudemans was one of the first individuals to suggest that the sea-serpent may be an unidentified mammal.
