Folklore of the seas and rivers has a resonance in cultures all over the world. Watery hopes, fears and dreams are shared and passed on wherever rivers flow and waves crash. This fascinating book covers English sailor superstitions and shape-shifting pink dolphins of the Amazon, Scylla and Charybdis, the many guises of Mami Wata, the tale of the Yoruba River spirit, the water-horses of Scottish lochs, the infamous mystery of the Bermuda Triangle, and much more, accompanied by stunning woodcut illustrations.
