|Dragons: Legends and Lore of Dinosaurs|
Ancient peoples have recorded similar creatures in picture form from ancient artifact art to petroglyphs.
Men from Roman Philosopher and Statesman, Marcus Cicero (45 BC) to a 17th Century Jesuit, Athansius Kircher, have give written accounts of these creatures as well.
Within these pages, you'll discover:
* A first hand account of a flying serpent killed in the Huachuca desert in 1890.
* The discovery of a long muzzled, spiky thorned dinosaur fossil called Dragorex Hogwartsia
* That the original biblical Hebrew text included the word "tannin" (land or seas monsters or serpents); in Greek, "drakon" was used.
* Specifically where scripture talks about Dragons
From the book:
"Removing supernatural events and sticking to clearly defined accounts and historical records, there is a logical explanation for the worldwide prevalence of dragon legends. Like dragons, Noah's flood is supported as a historical event by the many flood legends found in almost every culture in the world"
The late Dr. Henry Morris (Institute for Creation Research) is quoted as saying "All ancient nations regarded dragons as real animals, frequently encountered by humans."
This is a very informative book which breaks down legend and lore as opposed to scientific fact WITH scriptural evidence to back it up.
Though this was an enjoyable and educational read for my children (ages 12,9 and 7) there were some pictures that had a "Dungeons and Dragons" flavor that they did not like.
I received this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
