The Book of Giants is an apocryphal Jewish book which expands the Urzeit to Endzeit ('primeval creation' to 'end of time') narrative of the Hebrew Bible and, by its multifaceted elaborations on divine decrees of warning and doom, ties the ancient prophet Enoch (ḥanôk) closer to his generally recognized 'storyline' (as collectively put forth in various Enochic traditions) than does even the story's principal treatise of 1 Enoch.

A lake monster is a lake-dwelling entity in folklore. A well-known example is the Loch Ness Monster. Lake monsters' depictions are often similar to sea monsters. According to the Swedish naturalist and author Bengt Sjögren (1980), the present-day lake monsters are variations of older legends of water kelpies.

Giant Octopus of Lake Thunderbird . For the record, there are no known freshwater octopi. But that hasn’t stopped persistent tales of cephalopod horrors in American lakes, particularly in Oklahoma where a giant octopus in Lake Thunderbird has been blamed for an increase in mysterious drowning deaths. The octopus sounds like your standard saltwater octopus with its brown skin tinged with red and sprawl of tentacles, although reportedly the Lake Thunderbird octopus is as large as a horse.

If you are visiting Scotland Highlands then you must visit the lake and try to figure out whether the Loch Ness Monster is a fact or myth. According to the tale, St. Columba heard of a monster in the lake that had killed a man. The legend of the Loch Ness Monster dates back to the 7th century, when a tale about a monster that resided near the loch appeared in Life of St. Columba. He went to defeat the monster taking one of his follower who was sent into the loch’s water as bait.

This is the best book I've seen about Kenya's former Northern Frontier District (NFD). It was obviously a labor of love by the author. It is well-written and has numerous illustrations, many of them in color. It's a shame that the title is not more indicative of the contents.

Monty Brown did a great job chronicling the exploits of some of the first Europeans to explore Kenya and some of the surrounding areas of east Africa. The book has been out of print for quite some time but it is still worth picking up if you are interested in African colonial history. Gun enthusiasts will especially enjoy Brown's account of the initial use of Mannlicher rifles by hunters and explorers in Africa. It looks great on a coffee table and is good reading to boot!
