Destination Truth: Memoirs of a Monster Hunter, by Josh Gates
Josh Gates is the host of Syfy’s Destination Truth, where his team travels the globe in search of myths and monsters. In this journal of Gates’ travels, we get a more in-depth look at his expeditions, how he got started with the show, and his thoughts and feelings on travel. This is a quick read, with plenty of stories, memories, and his take on a variety of monsters from mythology and folk tales.
Gates is incredibly entertaining and hilarious on the show and in print. His retelling of his adventures cover a vast array of aired episodes: hunting the illusive Yeti, walking through deadly Chernobyl, challenging King Tut’s curse in Egypt, searching for mermaids, giant snakes, and much more. Several pages of pictures from Gates’ travels are also featured; some look familiar from the show. Just like the show, Destination Truth: Memoirs of a Monster Hunter is full of adventure, legends, excitement, tales of interesting local cuisine, and laugh-out-loud commentaries. Fans of the show will find this behind-the-scenes look fun and even thought-provoking.
