Darren Zenko takes us on a cruise around the alternative universe of shapeshifters. Discover the pink river dolphins of Amazonia, said to turn into handsome men in order to seduce young women. Travel to the Orkney Islands to meet the selkies, mystical seals with the power to shed their skins and take human form. In Japan, we encounter the Turtle-princess and kitsune, the fox who changes to human form in pursuit of mischief. The wendigo of the Canadian wilds is a shape-changing eater of human flesh, once a man but now something monstrous. And, of course, we visit the werewolf, reviewing the classic and abundant werewolf legends of 16th-century France and meeting the first werewolf of history, Lycaeon. The book also examines the ample werewolf legends of North and South American native tribes.
