From Our Editors

Terry Glavin offers an enthralling and disturbing work surrounding a natural mystery. Sturgeons, 12 to 20 feet long and capable of living for a century or more have been washing ashore dead, since the early 1990s. Yet there is nothing evidential in their systems that might have killed them. Attempting to solve this bizarre puzzle, Transmontanus 1: A Ghost in the Water incorporates biology, cryptozoology, zoology, adventure, poetry, history, myth and tragedy. Rich with detail about the scientifically unknown sturgeon, this book is a fascinating exploration of our feelings about wildlife in general.
