Overview

From time immemorial, dragons have walked and flown in the minds of men.

Nearly every culture on Earth has myths of these mighty beings. Anywhere humans have set foot, one can find dragonlore. Even today these majestic creatures captivate and amaze us. They appear in our movies and fantasy novels, and abound in traditional and virtual role-playing games (RPGs).

Dragonlore recounts the stories of dragons from Europe, Asia and the Americas, from the sea serpents Leviathan and Nessie to Lewis Carroll's Jabberwock. This richly-illustrated book examines dragons in modern culture and the natural world, including the pterodactyl and other saurians, whose fossilized bones were inexplicable and awe-inspiring discoveries. And don't forget about the Komodo Dragon, the largest lizard alive today.

Come, walk with author and dragon lore expert Ashley DeKirkā€¦in the shadow of the dragon.

Dragonlore is the first book in a series developed from popular courses taught at the online Grey School of Wizardry (www.GreySchool.com). Each volume in the series, titled the Archives of the Grey School of Wizardry, will be written by faculty members and introduced and edited by Headmaster and wizard Oberon Zell-Ravenheart.

These textbooks will form a comprehensive library that Magick-users everywhere will wish they'd had during their own apprentice years. Following the 16 departments of the Grey School, the Archives will provide in-depth looks at the Wizarding world with favorite topics such as dragonlore, naturalist studies, magickal healing, herbology, divination, cosmology, and more.

Ashley "LeopardDancer" DeKirk, Professor of Lore and Divination at the Grey School of Wizardry, has extensive knowledge of myth and folklore around the world. She holds a B.A. in anthropology, specializing in dragonlore and Asiatic/Native American myth. Professor DeKirk is a Dun'marran Priest who lives in North Carolina with her three cats, Rufus, Drizzt and Bakura.

Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, Headmaster of the Grey School of Wizardry and best-selling author of Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard and Companion for the Apprentice Wizard, is a Founding Elder in the worldwide magickal community. In 1962, he co-founded a Pagan church with a futuristic vision, and for more than 30 years, published Green Egg, a leading journal of the Pagan movement.

    For those actually looking into dragons, I do not reccomend this

    For those actually looking into dragons, I do not reccomend this book.  While the basic information is accurate, a good majority of it is simply ridiculous.  The worst example is when it talks about imperial dragons (page 23), the book shows an illustration of a Chinese Dragon with the caption that says "Imperial Dragon" and the dragon has only 3 claws when it clearly says "The dragons that adorned the Emperor's robes sported five toes instead of the usual four.  These dragons were called shen-lung or Imperial Dragons"  (Page 24).  This book also frequently refers to other forms of media including stories & legends (no big deal to me), video games, movies, DnD games, and even childrens' television shows.  This book may be a great way to spark some interest in the Dragons, but I would not use it as a primary source for information.  I DO like how it goes into legends and stories from various cultures all around the world, including Africa.  Compared to other books, and what I've heard regarding dragons, this book was a huge disappointment for me.
