The Loch Ness Monster -- an enduring mystery

Do you believe the Loch Ness monster exists? After reading this book, we think you just might.


North Vancouver author Angus Dinsdale's life was filled with the mystery of Loch Ness and its elusive inhabitant after his father, Tim, filmed the creature in 1960. The experience shifted Tim's life direction forever.


Angus tells his father's story with compassion and gratitude for the wonderful experiences this intelligent and thoughtful man gave to his family; and he outlines the scientific endeavours that both deepened the mystery and continue to inspire people to search for the answer to the question: What is living in Loch Ness?
