Why are dragons recognised in almost all cultures on Earth? What is the mysterious geomantic gold they secretly guard? Could dragons be a folk memory of something which once hunted us?
In this beautiful little book Joyce Hargreaves tells the story of these extraordinary animals through examples drawn from all over the world. Richly illustrated, and with detailed appendices of noteable dragon sites around the United Kingdom, this is an essential and timeless book.

A fun little book, with lots of short references to actual myths from all over the world. Not a lot of detail, but a good starting place if you want to learn about dragons in real mythologies.
