Snakes and Their Ways is a reprint of the classic 1937 edition by C.H. Curran and Carl Kauffeld. 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 recognise the ecological (and economic) importance of snakes. The book contains 62 illustrations. Chapters of snake stories and snakes in history and religion make this a must for the shelves of anyone interested in herpetology.
