The Natural History of Unicorns

Please. Take my hand. Join me in entering into the magical, dangerous, and fascinating history of the unicorn.


Historian Chris Lavers takes his readers on a journey with his new book, The Natural History of Unicorns, of unicorn mythology, detailing the lore of the one-horned beast and how its identity has been constantly reconstructed since 398 BCE. From their role in Greek mythos to reports of overzealous hunting of the fictional animal, the unicorn has consistently been represented and envisioned as the symbol of magic and the power.
Fun Fact! The unicorn is mentioned seven times in the Old Testament.

Whether you loved Lisa Frank or not as a child (I know I did), Lavers book is sure to be an enchanting read.
