Love them or hate them, rattlesnakes fascinate us. Rattlesnake Adventures: Hunting with the Oldtimers has compiled under a single cover many of the best stories of rattlesnake hunters in pursuit of Eastern diamondback, timber and massasauga rattlesnakes. Many of these stories are plucked from obscure books long out-of-print that are becoming scarce. Snake lovers and hunters crave the adventures of other herpers. Field guides are helpful but lack excitement. Rattlesnake Adventures presents tales by Ditmars, Kauffeld, Scoville, Teale, and Rutledge and also includes stories from the "new" oldtimers, Richard Bartlett, Ted Levin, Frank Weed, Ed Brown, and the editor John Kemnitzer, Jr.

"Rattlesnake Adventures truly lives up to its title, and is just plain exciting to read as surely as it is an enlightening compendium of classic discoveries in rattlesnake natural history." -- The Midwest Book Review, November 2006

"One of those volumes that once opened it is hard to put down! Reading these accounts, you can almost experience being "in the field" with the authors when they were catching, in some cases, rare, very large and extremely dangerous reptiles given the times!" -- Alan H. Wilkie, $The Herptile, 31:4, December 2006

"If you get excited about planning your next herping trip or reliving a past field trip; you will enjoy reading and rereading these adventures." -- Norm Damm, Notes from Noah, January 2007

"This book will prove highly enlightening to anyone interested in rattlesnake or copperhead behavior and ecology." -- Harlan D. Walley, Bulletin of the Maryland Herpetological Society, Volume 43, Number 1, March 2007

"Most herp titles that appear today are either field guides or treatises on various aspects of reptile and amphibian biology; many are good reads for folks like us but only in dribs and drabs. Rattlesnake Adventures is a refreshing departure, it's like being pulled into a circle of story tellers who just happen to have had experiences with, and like to talk about, some of the most impressive snakes on the planet: the rattlers." -- Romulus Whitaker, Hamadryad, Vol. 31, No. 2
