Product description...

Life wasn’t easy for the early Arizona pioneers who settled in the rattlesnake kingdom of the world…

Arizona Rattlesnake Tales takes the reader back in time to experience the unimaginable hardships cowboys and pioneers faced while living amongst the dreaded “rattler,” in a time when antivenom was nonexistent and a rattlesnake bite was often a death sentence. The book includes vintage clippings—unedited reports from 1866–1923 newspapers that paint a clear picture of the extreme adversity and tragedy early settlers dealt with. The tales are scary, exciting, humorous, and oftentimes sad, and they all help to illuminate this fascinating time and place in U.S. history.

If you’re a true Arizona history buff, there’s no other book like Arizona Rattlesnake Tales!
