Snakes and Their Ways by Carl Kauffeld, C.H. Curran


Snakes and Their Ways by Carl Kauffeld, C.H. Curran

Snakes and Their Ways is a reprint of the classic 1937 edition by Carl Kauffeld and C.H. Curran. Presented in narrative format, the book deals with the appearance, habitats, and habits of snakes. Each chapter presents both fact and fiction, dispelling many of the misconceptions of folklore, religion, and mythology. In a perspective novel for its time, the authors recognize the ecological (and economic) importance of snakes. The book contains 62 illustrations. Chapters on snake stories and snakes in history and religion make this a must for the shelves of anyone interested in herpetology.
