Ancient maps, legends, and fairy tales all tell of dragons in our world. In nearly every culture, we are taught as children that dragons are big and fearsome, that they fly, breathe fire, are found in caves and live nearly forever. Where did these stories come from?

Romulus Whitaker, renowned reptile expert and conservationist, puts a bit of history together with documented science and some compelling contemporary reports, and sets off to find out. He encounters lizards large and small that can breathe life into medieval legends even today.
