Dragons of the West is well researched and includes dragons from all over Europe. A downside of its small press publication is that it was not proof-read as well as it should be. The book formatting is a bit odd and there are some typos (the most notable being that 'Knucker' is mispelt as 'Knuckler').

Some people get the mistaken idea from the synopsis that this is a dragon magic book. It isn't. The book covers history and symbolism, not any modern day dragon spirituality.
