'Here, at last, the much-needed compilations of animal lore that can help us understand and appreciate the creatures that populate our worlds, both outer and interior. In this totally delightful and beautifully illustrated book, Elizabeth Caspari introduces each animal with scientific, zoological information; then presents popular folkloric beliefs about, and traditional symbolic associations to them the world over. These are extremely useful for our understanding of traditional emblematic and symbolic references to animals in the literature and art of numerous cultural traditions.'
