The author begins with an account of an American biologist who in an experiment on a new-born calf managed to move its horn buds to the center of its forehead, where they eventually grew into a single horn. The biologist claimed to have created the unicorn. The author then examines other "artificial" unicorns through history, looks at the unicorn legend and the possible sources in real animals, and finally provides Old Testament references to the unicorn.
