Werewolves: A Field Guide to Shapeshifters, Lycanthropes, and Man-Beasts is a rip-roaring ride through the myths and truths of lycanthropy through the ages. With a deftness that does justice to the complexity and vastness of the subject, Bob Curran delves into the history of the evolution of the werewolf. With references to St. Patrick turning a man into a werewolf and dog-headed saints, the backstory of lycanthropy emerges from the fog-shrouded lore it has been relegated to for centuries.

Weaving together fact - i.e. cave paintings in the French Pyrenees from 13,000 BCE - with the traditional Hollywood history we know and love, Werewolves: A Field Guide is a brilliant read that any mystery, horror, and/or history fan will love.
