This is a must-have reference guide for any keen Dragonologist. It’s a book that will provide hours of pleasure and entertainment between parent and child as the evenings draw in. Templar is a small publisher with big ideas and this addition to their ‘ology’ series. Those people who just enjoy model making will love it as well, for there are 12 easy to assemble dragon models located inside the front and back covers. Featuring over 25 dragon species with plenty of fascinating info on what they eat, where they live and other interesting features. Why not take a look at other dragonology titles such as Dragonology, Dragon's Eye, Tracking and Taming Dragons, Working with Dragons?

Synopsis

Field Guide To Dragons by Dugald Steer

Featuring twelve scientifically accurate models of dragons, this field guide is a volume no serious dragonologist should be without. Each model can be rapidly assembled to aid identification, and then disassembled again for ease of carriage in the wild. More importantly, the book contains detailed drawings and notes about many different species of dragon, their general appearance, habits and likely locations, and is accompanied by a fascination introduction to dragon evolution. Much of the information herein has only recently come to light, including descriptions of hitherto undiscovered extinct species – essential reading for all serious students of the remarkable science of dragonology.
