In Search Of Unicorns

'Well, now that we have seen each other,' said the unicorn, 'if you'll believe in me, I'll believe in you.' Through The Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll.

Kirsty Walker goes in search of the origins of the unicorn.

Very early translations of the bible mention it, Alexander the Great reported seeing one, Queen Elizabeth I owned a unicorn's horn - it was said to protect you from poison, and in Chinese culture, the one horned animal was used to determine who was guilty.

It was said that only virgins could capture a unicorn, so as a 'mature' woman, will Kirsty find what she's looking for?
