I developed an interest in mermaids,as a child in Europe, by reading the classic tale of "The Little Mermaid", by Hans Chrisitian Andersen. It was the oft-told tale of the beautiful half woman, half fish mystical creature who loves a sailor from far-off and one day saves him from ship-wreck. As she nurtures him back to health, she comes to the realization that she must decide between being a woman on land with the man she loves, leaving all that she has known and life everlasting, or continuing in her lonely existance beneath the sea.
