"A mermaid found a swimming lad, Picked him for her own, Pressed her body to his body, Laughed; and plunging down Forgot in cruel happiness That even lovers drown." (William Butler Yeats)"
From the Author
Mysterious, magical, and mesmerizingly beautiful, mermaids have enchanted humanity for thousands of years. No matter where you go on Planet Earth you'll hear stories of the elusive and evocative sea creatures, who are sometimes benevolent, sometimes destructive, but always alluring. They swim the seven seas, splash about in rivers and lakes, and even frolic in fountains and wells. And these tantalizing creatures play a more important role in today's society than you might think.

This is just a wonderful book that personally helped me connect with the energy of the mermaids and understand mand of the stories and myths from around the world and see how they all tied together. The writing is well done, the images used are stunning and perfect and I love the quotes about mermaids from all kinds of sources. This is a very intro to these stories and myths, and it can open you up to researching more of these stories and questioning...
...what did they see at the sea what are these stories all around the world.
