What People are Saying About This

Harry W. Greene

"Sean Graham is a fine field biologist and scholar, an unusually talented writer, and he’s provided the best imaginable book on my favorite organisms. Here new converts to pondering serpents will get the most up-to-date facts, skillfully sifted and presented, all enlivened by a vibrant array of illustrations; those with more experience will be reminded over and over again how we became fascinated with these limbless reptiles. American Snakes is truly a gift for everyone who wants to savor their wonderful world."

Toby J. Hibbitts

"This well-written and enjoyable introduction to snakes fills a gap in the current literature. Most books are either written for youngsters who are just becoming fascinated or for seasoned veterans of snake literature looking to learn a few new details. This book does a great job of dispelling myths and answering many of the typical questions that one gets when others find out that you are interested in snakes, making itinteresting to all levels of snake enthusiasts."
