Monsters of the Sea

Descriere: In Monsters of the Sea, Richard Ellis, one of the country’s foremost authorities on ocean life, casts his net wide in search of the most unusual aquatic creatures–from mermaids to manatees to the Loch Ness monster and everything in between. Combined with his own black-and-white illustrations, Ellis also closely examines the literary sources of sea monster lore, from Homer’s The Odyssey to the works of Jules Verne and Peter Benchley.
Highly entertaining and packed with curiosities–including new information on a recently photographed twenty-five-foot-long giant squid and the newly named "mimic octopus"–Monsters of the Sea is a one-of-a-kind journey into two extremely fertile worlds: the human imagination and the deep blue sea.
