Investigations Into the UnexplainedBook - 1999 | 1st ed.
Two new color-illustrated volumes in this series for older children examine evidence surrounding many of the world's most mysterious events. The books guide their readers through mysteries by presenting events in a format that is both accessible and sensible. Events described might seem to be out of the supernatural, but many have entirely natural explanations -- while a few others have turned out to be elaborate hoaxes. Yet many more remain surrounded by mysteries that even the world's scientists haven't yet solved. Young readers get the opportunity to put facts in perspective with sidebar features, What Science Says information boxes, and What Do You Think? question boxes. Readers are encouraged to review the information objectively and draw their own conclusions.Gathered here are reports about Yeti and Sasquatch, the big-footed human-like giants allegedly spotted in the wilderness in several parts of the world. Here too are accounts of the Loch Ness monster, tales of vampires and werewolves, and legends about dragons and mermaids. Some accounts are known to be fantasy, while others remain unexplained.
