The author weaves intriguing folk-tales and anecdotes into a thesis on how so great a creature as the dragon actually managed to fly. His theory is tied in with reports on dragons' flight patterns, eating habits and family life. He reveals the dragon's special reason for hoarding gold, their distinctive mating and evolutionary cycle, in a romantic yet well-researched and satisfying construction of the dragon's way of life. Colorful illustrations.
