Description

In 1933 "Nessie" erupted into the public consciousness with a deluge of sightings of "something" in the waters of the 22 mile long and 700 foot deep Scottish loch. Since then the Loch Ness Monster has captured the public imagination more than any other cryptid creature. Gathered in this book are the original newspaper accounts from the years 1933 and 1934, when "Nessie Fever" was at its height. Not just sightings, but plans for monster hunts and government responses to the appearance of this unknown creature are presented here. A number of the sightings documented here, possibly too "mundane" to be sensationalised by the national press, are seeing print for the first time since the 1930's, after languishing in the archived pages of the small local newspapers in which they first appeared. Whatever your stance on the existence of the Loch Ness Monster, these accounts provide a fascinating insight into the happenings and opinions that swirled around Loch Ness in the early part of the 20th Century.show more
