The Best of the Beast

I am a unicorn nut, and when I was young someone gave me a copy of this book (back then it was hardcover and had a very different picture on the cover). The stories in this volume have been with me ever since. There is such a variety of wonderful, magical unicorn tales in this book, and each one is a treasure. I can't recommend this book enough. Buy two, one to keep and one to love, because the paperback won't last like my hardcover copy has.


These stories about what are possibly the world's most illusive and mysterious creatures were intense and powerful. Full of the magic implicit the the word unicorn, they swept me up and carried me to a different land.
