River Monsters by Jeremy Wade

Book Description

The television show River Monsters is the most successful series in Animal Planets history. Nearly 2 million people watched the season two debut episode in April 2010. Now, as the much-hyped third season begins in April 2011, host and extreme angler Jeremy Wade--a freshwater Indiana Jones--brings the adventure to life on the page as well, taking readers below the surface to explore one of the last frontiers. Each chapter of River Monsters is a detective story, where folklore and fishermens tales are subjected to scientific scrutiny in order to separate fact from fiction. Wade reveals the details of how he tracked down--and caught--each species using nothing more than an old school rod, reel, and net. With the full support of Animal Planet, River Monsters promises to take readers where few humans have gone before.

River Monsters by Jeremy Wade River Monsters, Paperback (October 2012)

In 'River Monsters', Wade delivers a sometimes jaw-dropping blend of adventure, natural history, legend and detective work. It reads like a hunt for the Loch Ness Monster. But it's all true. Awe-inspiring creatures like the Sawfish, described as a cross between a shark and a chainsaw, inhabit the real world.
