Nightmares of Nature Summary
This work investigates the dangers we face from animals, separating the very real threats from misconceptions based on myth, religion, voodoo, witchcraft, horror film and fiction. These have encouraged us to fear the great white shark out of all proportion, as it kills only a handful of people a year, and remain ignorant of the saw scaled viper, which kills thousands, many more than any other animal on earth.
