“The Untold Story of Champ” by Robert E. Bartholomew has been published by SUNY Press.

Champ is the “legendary” monster of Lake Champlain.

“Bartholomew embarks on a search to find the truth behind the mythical creature,” according to the publisher. He finds the trail obscured by sloppy journalism, local leaders motivated by tourism income and bickering monster hunters.

Mr. Bartholomew, a native of New York state, teaches history at Botany College in Auckland, New Zealand.

“The Untold Story of Champ” sells for $24.95 and is available on the publisher’s website, www.sunypress.edu
