Product Details


“I love the way Scott Bruce has scoured so much ancient lore to bring us this treasury of dragon-related information, and I shall turn to it frequently.” ―Philip Pullman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Golden Compass

“Scholarly and thrilling. By collecting some of the foundational―and also most surprising―historical sources on these guardians of the ‘boundary between the known and unknown,’ Scott Bruce has created the new indispensable resource for anyone who cares about dragons.” ―Adam Gidwitz, New York Times bestselling author of A Tale Dark and Grimm and The Inquisitor’s Tale

“A guide to the fantastic beasts and where to find them in the world’s mythological and literary traditions . . . Scott Bruce knows a thing or two about what scares us.” ―Atlas Obscura

“Fascinating . . . Expert commentary provides helpful context throughout. . . . A well-researched survey for those with a deep interest in dragons.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Delightful . . . An engaging way to immerse yourself in the world of dragons. Each section is a short trip to a different land and time period, providing a fascinating blend of fantasy and history. . . . We learn about dragons, certainly, but also much about ourselves.” ―ImaginAtlas
