People are Seeing Something: A Survey of Lake Monsters in the United States and Canada

In this book, Denver Michaels examines reports of lake monsters in the United States and Canada. Simply put, Michaels' title says it all-people are seeing something-sincere, honest people report seeing strange creatures in the water on a regular basis. The reports are real; moreover, there is much more to the plethora of sightings than just the misidentification of known animals and hoaxes. Michaels also takes the time to examine the bodies of water where cyrptids are said to dwell. Could the nature of the lakes themselves point to some sort of link that could help explain lake monster sightings? Although Michaels believes that uncategorized creatures exist, he approaches the topic with a skeptical eye.

The Golden Bough: A Study of Magic and Religion

James Frazer's monumental study of world mythology and folklore has been a controversial work for over a century. The Golden Bough is "a great body of primitive and barbarous beliefs" and essential reading for anyone interested in mythology, supernatural magic or religion, especially modern neo-pagan practices.

ORAL LITERATURE IN AFRICA

Ruth Finnegan's Oral Literature in Africa was first published in 1970, and since then has been widely praised as one of the most important books in its field. Based on years of fieldwork, the study traces the history of storytelling across the continent of Africa. This revised edition makes Finnegan's ground-breaking research available to the next generation of scholars. It includes a new introduction, additional images and an updated bibliography, as well as its original chapters on poetry, prose, "drum language" and drama, and an overview of the social, linguistic and historical background of oral literature in Africa. This book is the first volume in the World Oral Literature Series, an ongoing collaboration between OBP and World Oral Literature Project. A free online archive of recordings and photographs that Finnegan made during her fieldwork in the late 1960s is hosted by the World Oral Literature Project (http://www.oralliterature.org/collections/rfinnegan001.html) and can also be accessed from publisher's website.
