Octavo (21 x 18 cm), pp. xviii, 317, . Navy quarter cloth over cream boards with gilt lettering on spine. Signed by author on title page. Foreword by Harry W. Greene. With index, b/w and color photos. Nabhan collaborates with the Seri Tribal Governors and Traditional Council of Elders to illustrate the role of reptiles in the cultural life of the Comcaac people. "In this fine book [Nabhan] eloquently documents the rich, complicated ties between the Comcáac (Seri) people and the snakes, turtles, and lizards with which they share a common place. But the book is more than an elegy, it is a vibrant plea to save these people and animals and the stories, myths, and harsh realities that bind them." (Kent H. Redford, Director, Wildlife Conservation Society Institute) Dust jacket present. First Edition.
