The Adventures of an America Snakehunter

Ambushes, snake-bitten, nearly drowning in a river, stuck in quicksand, left to die on an uninhabited island were all in a day’s work for me, a young man who grew up dreaming of adventure in rural Davie, Florida.

I entered the animal business in my teens, and set out to explore the beautiful, disappearing worlds of the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America, and capture deadly pit vipers, giant poisonous frogs, land iguanas and boas. Without a college degree, I got my advanced education the hard way: in the wilderness.

Action packed, with travels to exotic lands, interesting characters, danger, beauty, history, and incredible animals. Koulèv – Book One includes over 150 photos, clippings, tables, maps, suggested reading and cross-references. Approximately 110,000 words, 472 pages, with annotated table of contents, glossary, and detailed index.

Teachers eventually encouraged him, allowed a snake cage outside of the class window.
