Summary: Venture into the enchanted world of dragons to confront the horrifying Welsh Red Dragon, the delicate Japanese Butterfly Lizard, and the scaly Eastern Temple Worm. Recounted here for the very first time are the amazing exploits of three intrepid adventurers who, fearlessly, discovered some of the most dazzling dragons that ever lived. The notably undistinguished Victorian scientist, Rowland W. Greasebeam, B.Sc. (Serpentology) F.R.Aud., has collected rare historical documents to prove that the discovery of dragons can be attributed to these brave individuals. Read the actual letters of Bjorn of Bromme, a Viking who scrawled his notes on a piece of hide while pillaging Europe in the 9th century; the delicate calligraphy of Soong Mei Ying, who wrote to her father as she traveled the Silk Road in the 13th century; and, finally, the correspondence of Prussian cartographer Dr. E. F. Liebermann, who wrote to his fiancee on the world's first typewriter from the depths of the African jungle. Their entertaining escapades and gripping encounters with dastardly dragons will astound and amuse readers of all ages. Was Bjorn truly one of the great Viking explorers? Could Soong Mei Ying actually have discovered every Asiatic Dragon known to Serpentology? Did Dr. Liebermann really perish, brokenhearted, in the wilds of Tasmania?
