Spellbound by Snakes

Snakes: The Evolution of Mystery in Nature is a new study-for herpetologists and lay readers alike-of the slithering creatures that both fascinate and scare us by Harry W. Greene, curator of herpetology in the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology and professor of integrative biology.

Each chapter opens with an essay considering its subject from a more personal perspective, such as the historical symbolism of rattlesnakes.

As Patricia Holt put it in The San Francisco Examiner: "This definitive study of snakes invites us to experience an intimacy with the serpent world we may never have thought possible."
