Are dragons just the stuff of myths and legends? If so, why do those legends abound all over the world? This book provides answers in Dragons: Legends and Lore of Dinosaurs. This colourful, casebound book fascinated everyone in our household from three years old to fifty-five. Hidden in envelopes, behind doors, and in crannies within the book are some of the widespread legends of dragons from ancient Babylon to ancient South America. Quotations from eyewitnesses as varied as Cicero, Marco Polo and The Tombstone Epitaph newspaper describe flying monsters that sound and look like dinosaurs that allegedly died out millions of years ago. Written from a creationist perspective, the book explains the evolutionary bias that prevents people from recognising the obvious: dragons were dinosaurs. Starting with Deuteronomy 32:33, Bill Looney records verses that refer to dragons. He deals with the passages comparing Satan to a dragon. He lists several legends, such as the legend of England's patron saint, Saint George, which tie dragons to particular saints who allegedly tamed or defeated them.
