If you are looking for accounts and retelling of encounters with werewolves, this is a great starting point. Be mindful this was published in 1865 and the content will have “current” events the author had encountered as well as mythological findings in terms of what was known and understood at that time. From the legends of using magical wolf skins to the terrifying accounts of lycanthropy, you will find both known and forgotten accounts. It is amazing to see the variety of cultures covered side-by-side as the author takes us to North America, Africa, India, France, and even Iceland and Russia.

This scholarly investigation in the subject of werewolves is made all the more meaningful with illustrations that augment the material.

The size of the eBook is about 200 pages.
