If your looking for material to put you to sleep, look elsewhere! This book, however, is supercharged with great info for both the "average nature lover" and the casual to fairly involved field-herpers. You won't find a field guide with better rattlesnake photos for identification anywhere! I can't say enough about this great book, that will always have a prized spot on my bookshelf at the front of my snake book collection.

This book was given to me by a friend with much knowledge of rattlesnakes as a must have. As a novice in rattlesnakes, but an enthusiast, I found this book to be very comprehensive, informative, and quite descriptive. The authors did a remarkable job in conveying their knowledge on the subject and stimulated my interest even more in herpetology. Overall - high marks for this well-written and enjoyable book.

If you are looking for information on all the rattlesnakes in the US this is the book to get. It's informative, concise, well written & some of the best reptile photography I've ever seen. S Hurley, I think just missed the boat on what the point of this book is about. You can find anything on the Internet, but do you carry it with you wherever you go? Do you believe everything on the internet? Perhaps you are one of those people that think you know best. At least you recognize excellent photography.

This book is a great read from cover to cover. Tons of beautiful pictures and I really enjoyed the "trivia" sections listed under each snake's natural history, distribution, and biological info.

Highly recommended!

Format: Perfect Paperback
Put quite simply, this book does what it is intended to do, and does it quite well. It is not intended to be an academic text, nor is it intended to shed a lot of illuminating light for those that have extensive experience dealing with these creatures. Rather, it was published with the layperson in mind, and along those lines there are few easily accessible books that match it in terms of photographic quality or "need to know info".

Those just discovering these fascinating creatures will find colorful, vibrant pictures of each species, along with essential information about size, prey, range, etc. Those that have a bit more experience will surely appreciate the unique photo perspectives offered. Those that really have no specific interest in rattlesnakes but want to know what they saw on their morning hike will find this book a useful resource in that regard.

In short, this compact field guide offers essential information without an overload of "technical" or scientific info. All readers (experienced and novice alike) will walk away with a greater appreciation for these creatures, and as such this book delivers on its promise.

Format: Perfect Paperback
This book gives great information along with outstanding photos of each species. It is a nice addition to field guides for field herpers who come across rattlesnakes and are not sure what species they have encountered. It is easy to follow unlike some books with too much scientific details. This book is a must have for the snake enthusiast.
