Jean-Claude Bourret
The secret of the Beast of Gévaudan (Tome 2)

(Click on picture to enlarge it)


This is the true story of the Beast of Gévaudan, which killed and ate a hundred and ten people and wounded fifty-four more between the years 1764 to 1767.

On 20th September 1765, François Antoine, King Louis XV's personal arquebus bearer, shot an enormous wolf in the Gévaudan region (see Vol. 1). This frightening creature, covered in scars, was represented at the royal Court in Versailles as being the Beast of Gévaudan, the animal responsible for the massacres.

But the real Beast of Gévaudan was still alive, and still carrying out its deadly attacks !

Supported by more than twenty years of research and the latest documentary evidence, Jean-Claude Bourret can now reveal the secret of the Beast of Gévaudan. A fascinating tale, for readers of all ages.

I discovered this book at Simply, in Aumont-Aubrac, on the St. Chély d'Apcher road, but you should also be able to get hold of a copy at FNAC- About €15
