Summary
'A Monstrous Commotion' delves deep into the depths of the Loch Ness phenomenon, one of the iconic scientific mysteries of the last 100 years. The legend of the 'water horse' in Loch Ness and other Scottish lakes is ancient, but reports of the monster date from as recently as the 1930s, courtesy of a correspondent of the 'Inverness Courier.' Rather than debating the arguably unfathomable realities of what lies beneath these murky Scottish waters, Gareth Williams instead engages with the people who have dedicated themselves to unearthing the truth of the monster's existence. He explores just what it is that drives these people to the point of obsession, and the ways in which their own quests have changed their lives, and the lives of others
