At the age of nine, the author was bitten by a rattlesnake and thought the local hospital had no antivenin, she managed to survive. A year later she observed Hopi snake dances and saw the Hopi hold rattlers in their mouths while performing a rain dance. As an adult she witnessed the rattlesnake dance between two male rattlers vying for superiority. The author writes with candor and grace of her encounters with rattlesnakes, and the stories she relates are illustrated with powerful color drawings.
