Book Spotlight - The Tao of Alligators and Crocodiles by J.M Garlock

The Tao of Alligators and Crocodiles
Reviled in the West & revered in the East since time immemorial alligators and crocodiles have historically invoked diametrically opposing reactions in people. Ancient Egyptians and indigenous New World civilizations such as the Maya and Calusa called them living gods. Chinese believe them to be givers of life and health.

Alligators and crocodiles are the physical embodiment of eternal yin and yang. Their mythical, epic-making status has effortlessly allowed them to morph into modern day dragons that have flourished for millennia. They have been immortalized in the Book of the Dead, the Bible, the Urantia Book, Norse and African legends, Babylonian creation epics and Beowulf.

Having much in common with birds, alligators and crocodiles live the Tao in plain sight. This book explains all.
