Are elegant, elusive unicorns real, or just a myth? You decide with this new book in the nonfiction series, Behind the Legend!
Behind the Legend looks at creatures and monsters throughout history and analyzes them through a scientific, myth-busting lens, debating whether or not the sightings and evidence provided are adequate proof of their existence. In Unicorns, readers learn about all the sightings and "proof" of them, from stories in history of people who sought unicorns, like Julius Caesar, Genghis Khan, and Marco Polo, to why they were hunted so fiercely. This book also discusses additional history about the creatures, such as why their horns were so valued in medieval times, their presence in pop culture, and people's present-day search for unicorns. Complete with engaging anecdotes, interesting sidebars, and fantastic illustrations, kids won't want to put this book down!
An anecdotal introduction to the claims and stories that collectively shape the myth of the unicorn includes coverage of why they were so fiercely hunted, the famous historical figures who believed in them and why their horns were valued in medieval times. Simultaneous.
