Synopses & Reviews
This virtual encyclopedia of the rattlesnake became a natural history sensation when it was first published in 1956. The republication of the Second Edition, with a new foreword by Harry W. Greene, will give amateur and professional herpetologists alike reason to rejoice.
This book is written to outline our present knowledge of rattlesnake habits and life histories. It includes numbers of field observations from varied sources in the hope that it may aid in the correction of some of the dubious accounts long current in popular natural histories.
