By Robert Grey Reynolds, Jr
Price: $3.75 USD. Words: 4,560. Language: English. Published: May 1, 2013. Category: Nonfiction
My e-book is a collection of real-life shark attacks on humans. It ranges from the early 20th century until the early 21st century. Sharks often mistake the arms and legs of people for bait fish. This is because of their poor eyesight. The text presents newspaper coverage of sharks that have victimized swimmers, scuba divers, surfers, and divers in inlets. I hope the book will encourage caution.
