THE GREAT NEW ENGLAND SEA SERPENT:
AN ACCOUNT OF UNKNOWN CREATURES SIGHTED BY MANY RESPECTABLE PERSONS BETWEEN 1638 AND THE PRESENT DAY


BY J.P. O’NEILL

North America’s Version of the Loch Ness Monster?

   
 

Is it a strange mammal related to the seals, a descendant of a prehistoric reptile, or a new, unidentified animal? Whatever it is, or was, the witnesses call it a sea serpent. Remarkably similar descriptions of a creature with a long body, undulating motion, and horse-sized, snake-like head have left a trail of clues and controversy going back three centuries.

In The Great New England Sea Serpent, J.P. O’Neill draws on the historical record as well as previously unpublished first-hand accounts to chronicle more than 230 sightings of the mysterious marine creatures inhabiting the Gulf of Maine. This book is for all the people who look at the sea, and wonder…

The Great New England Sea Serpent . . . is a landmark in sea-serpent books. It gets high marks for being truly cryptozoologically aware, full of passion, and a great story that continues to unfold.” -- Loren Coleman, author of Bigfoot! and Mysterious America

“An extremely impressive work of scholarship, which will unquestionably remain the standard work on this significant example, and episode, in the history of unidentified marine creatures.” -- Karl Shuker, author of The New Zoo and The Beasts that Hide from Man

“This is a marvelous book. No one with an interest in marine life, cryptozoology, or the magic and mystery of the oceans should pass it by.” -- Matthew Bille, author of
Rumors of Existence
