About the Author

Charles Montgomery was born in 1968 and spent his formative years on a farm on Vancouver Island. He has been a writer and photojournalist for ten years, and lives in Mexico City and Vancouver. This is his first book.


'As delicate and impressively beautiful as any essay of exploration that I have read in recent years ! the quality of his prose seems matched only by the wisdom of his observations.' Simon Winchester, The Globe and Mail 'By far the best book of the whole year, perhaps in any field ! Adventurous, thorough in his research -- the history is as compelling as the journey -- and sensitive to the customs and character of the people he meets, Montgomery has produced a remarkable work. If you seek only one gift this Christmas, ask that it be ['The Shark God'].' Michael Hanlon, The Toronto Star 'A fascinating journey into a landscape of modern-day myth and magic, where people have not let go of their pagan ways despite the better efforts of generations of evangelical Christians. Tales of the supernatural meet travelogue, history and anthropology.' Scotland on Sunday
