The Element Illustrated Encyclopedia of Animals in Nature, Myth and SpiritBook - 1999
Animals fill our folk stories, legends and religions with their strengths, virtues and behaviour. For centuries we have lived along side them, hunting, being hunted, using them in sport or enjoying the comfort they bring as pets. This book provides an animal by animal exploration of all the animal worlds, real and imaginary, from lions and unicorns, to dinosaurs and dolphins, showing what we have learnt from animals and all they represent. It is divided into four main sections: earth; water; air; and myth.
