Dragonlore: From the Archives of Grey School of Wizardry By Ash “LeopardDancer” DeKirk with Forward by Oberon Zell-Ravenheart
From time immemorial, dragons have walked and flown in the minds of men. Nearly every culture on Earth has myths of these mighty beings. Anywhere humans have set foot, one can find dragonlore. Even today these majestic creatures captivate and amaze us. They appear in our movies and fantasy novels, and abound in traditional and virtual role-playing games (RPGs).
Dragonlore recounts the stories of dragons from Europe, Asia and the Americas, from the sea serpents Leviathan and Nessie to Lewis Carroll’s Jabberwock. This richly-illustrated book examines dragons in modern culture and the natural world, including the pterodactyl and other saurians, whose fossilized bones were inexplicable and awe-inspiring coveries. And don’t forget about the Komodo Dragon, the largest lizard alive today. Come, walk with author and dragon lore expert Ashley DeKirk… in the shadow of the dragon.
