During the summer of 1975, a large animal, moving about in the murky waters of Loch Ness swam across the path of highly sensitive underwater camera apparatus.  Scientists rushed the film to America under the strictest security and the results of their astonishing finding are published in this penguin. 

The legend of Nessie has grown up over the 1400 years, capturing the imagination of the world, Nicholas Witchell gives a careful historical account of all the sightings and descriptions, together with photographs taken by amatuers and scientists as they watched on the shores;  and relates the story of the many attemps to make the loch reveal its strange secret. 

"An excellent and lurid account" Gerald Durrell
