"Plants and animals that live together form a community of living things. Each member affects its neighbors in various ways. All are somehow linked together." Thus does the author sum up the essence of this fine book. He describes how and what snakes hunt, and their physical adaptations for catching and eating their prey. In their turn, snakes provide food for many other animals. Their place in the food chain, their place in nature's balance of populations, and their deserved place in the sun is scientifically and sympathetically spelled out.
