Publisher Description

The author indulges in the sport of tracking strange creatures to their lairs--including an unknown mammal in Bhutan, a very ugly waterbird in Cambodia, a bizarre primate in Borneo--and the highly dangerous Cassowary, in Australia. Not zoology--more like cryptozoology--coming face-to-face with near-mythical creatures.
