About this book

The Comc#ac, or Seri Indians, are a native people living in the biologically rich desert of Sonora, Mexico. Reptiles of all kinds including lizards, crocodiles, snakes, and turtles play a large role in Seri culture. Unfortunately the long term survival of the Comc#ac and the future of many of these animals are uncertain. Gary Nabhan describes the richness of Seri knowledge about reptiles with a combination of lyricism and scientific insight.
'Nabhan masterfully moves us to cross-cultural perspectives on the world's ecological issues. In addition to being a unique ethnozoological treatise, this book is about how 'native' cultures engage their natural worlds, of which they see themselves a part.' Wade C Sherbrooke, author of Horned Lizards of North America
