More Information
Modern man loves to be frightened, to feel the hairs rise on the back of the neck, and to this end both the press and the media have exploited an incredible variety of vampires, warlocks, ghouls, and things-that-go-bump-in-the-night. But horror?real horror?doesn?t have to be so farfetched. It?s right here in the natural world that surrounds us, waiting?. Waiting in the beautiful starry night of our own Glacier Park, waiting just off New Jersey?s sun-glazed beaches, waiting just beyond the children?s laughter in a Florida swimming hole, waiting just outside a peaceful African village. Waiting, in fact, anywhere that arrogant mankind forgets that not all creatures regard him as the supreme species! Veteran adventurer Peter Hathaway Capstick explores the wide world of maneaters?creatures who regard homo sapiens as just another meal ticket. From the jungles of Asia and South America to the African bush, and to our own supposedly civilized America, the types and varieties of maneaters are surprisingly numerous and incredibly widespread. And the danger from them is very real even today. The characters in this book are real, and the ultimate horror of being eaten alive is real. Within these pages one will meet the great cats, bears, sharks, the devil fish?piranha?crocodiles, and a host of others, including the most fearsome maneater of all?man himself. The fearsome legend of some, such as the killer whale or the American cougar, will be found to be just that?largely legend. On the other hand, our ?tame? and so carefully protected alligator may not be the ideal swimming companion! Maneaters?they?re all here, the stuff of true-to-life nightmares. The facts, figures, legends, and documented events are here?all told by a master storyteller.
