In a simple, compelling text, Dewey invites readers to share three of her personal experiences with rattlesnakes in her native New Mexico. The first is a traumatic, life-threatening episode involving a snakebite at the age of nine. The second describes her awe at a Hopi rain dance, watching the dancers handle snakes,including rattlers,with seeming impunity. The third, years later, depicts her wonder at observing two male rattlers jousting for dominance. These engrossing memories are embroidered with informative boxes of scientific facts and folklore about rattlesnakes, and the whole is handsomely enriched by Dewey's elegant, exquisitely detailed pencil illustrations and scientific diagrams.

PERFECT EXCEPT FOR A COUPLE OF PEN MARKS ON BLANK ENDPLATE PAGE WHICH IS DARK GREEN SO YOU CAN HARDLY SEE THEM.
AWESOME!
