The ominous rattle of the timber rattlesnake is a chilling shorthand for imminent danger, and a reminder of the countless ways that nature can suddenly snuff us out. Though they're found in thirty-one states, and near many major cities, in contemporary America timber rattlesnakes are creatures mostly of imagination and innate fear. Levin takes us from labs where the secrets of the snake's evolutionary history are being unlocked to far-flung habitats to explore the painful struggles involved in protecting and preserving its natural world.

Lets be honestpeople are misled about the genuine use of marijuana for medicinal use. There was a point and time where our society used to believe that cigarettes were safe and harmless, and some of the tobacco industry led us to believe it was healthy for us to smoke. Sounds familiar with marijuana today? Many years ago, people would sell bottles of drinks that were supposed to cure everything, better known as snake oil. Today we are faced with the twenty-first century snake oil that proponents want you to believe that marijuana cures everything from minor pains to cancer. Snake oil never lives up to the sellers hype. The great news is that most of our youth do not use marijuana; that in itself is refreshing
