Clearly written, cleanly designed, and fun to use, [Snakes of the Southeast] is a guide that will promote a better understanding of the habitat needs of, and environmental challenges to, snakes.(Bob Edmonds McCormick Messenger)
The Southeast is especially ripe for a book that places snakes in a context that can help catalyze a change in attitudes toward these badly maligned animals. This profusely illustrated book is a big step in the right direction. . . . The information presented here is detailed yet presented in an easy-to-understand format. This is a worthy and valuable addition to the natural history literature of the Southeast. This book should be carried by anyone going into any natural area of the Southeast. It should be kept on hand even in urban and other areas where snakes could turn up.(Copeia)
Small, medium, large, water, and venomous snakes are included as well as backyard snakes, pets, attitudes about them, and conservation.(SciTech Book News)
This is the most comprehensive educational guide to the snakes of the southeastern United States. Clearly written, well designed, and fun to use, the guide will promote better understanding of the habitat needs of, and the environmental challenges to, this fascinating group of animals.(Center for North American Herpetology)
A treasure to anyone having an interest in becoming a herpetologist . . . The photographs will attract every herpetologist, as they are fit in perfect context, and mostly never seen in publications before. Certainly the price will make it highly affordable for both the novice and professional herpetologist.(Bulletin of the Maryland Herpetological Society)
Easy to read . . . An informative book for the general public aimed at educating those with a limited knowledge of snakes.(Southeastern Naturalist)
Makes an eloquent case for the environmental importance of these slithery denizens of field, forest, swamp and backyard . . . The poisonous snakes evoke the most interest, of course, and the authors do a good job of debunking the many lurid myths that enshroud these vipers.(Mobile Register)
A storehouse of easily digested information.(Athens Banner-Herald)
