The literature on snakes is voluminous but overwhelmingly centered in the natural sciences, with little published about them in the fields of popular culture or the history of medicine. Focusing primarily on American culture and history from the 1800s, this study draws on a wide range of sources – including newspaper archives, medical journals, and archives from the Smithsonian Institute – to examine the complex relationship between snakes and humans.
