About this book

Language: English

From the back of the book:

"No one denies the need to understand the interactions of air, soil, water, Earth's atmosphere, land, ooeans, ice and life as a single connected system. We need to do this to really study the Earth as a single connected system. And to be able to do so, we need to appreciate the beauty and importance of every denizen on Earth including the most humble and the most insignificant.

Snakes are perhaps the most misunderstood and therefore, the most maligned cteatures on Earth. Human attitude towards this group of animals has been strangely paradoxical. We either worship them or else we kill them on sight. They are one of Life's great treasures themselves, misunderstood, persecuted and now, brought to the brink of extinction by habitats degraded or encroached upon by man. We owe it to ourselves to learn a littIe bit more about snakes, our co-inhabitants of Planet Earth and this booklet is a small effort in that direction."
