Summary
In this collection of obscure and addictive true tales from history, Milton presents outrageously unbelievable-- yet true-- stories from history. There's the Russian scientist who attempted to produce a human-ape hybrid; the family who survived thirty-eight days at sea after their ship was destroyed by a killer whale; and Churchill ordered the test of biological weapons using sheep on a small Scottish island
