Now out: Koulèv: Adventures of an American Snake Hunter, Book One and Book Two

Koulèv, Adventures of an American Snake Hunter is out at last! My first book! Many of my oldest friends will not be surprised I wrote a book (actually two!) about snake hunting adventures. Others however, those I have met in the past 40+ years in the plant world, might be. They know me from Tropiflora, the plant business I founded in 1976, and retired from a few years ago to write. If you remember the Cargo Report from the 1990s and 2000s, then you will be familiar with my travel adventures. Some of the stories in Koulèv you may even recognize. For certain, if you enjoyed reading the Cargo Report, you will love reading Koulèv.

This is a story in two volumes. Each is filled with stories and many photos of my adventures and has useful tables with information about nomenclature of the animals and plants mentioned in the text.

These books, including eBook versions, are now available on If you are planning a visit to Tropiflora, or who would like a signed copy, you may contact me at or

I sincerely hope you will enjoy reading about the early years of the adventurous life I have be so blessed to have led—and lived to write about!  All authors thrive and depend on reader input. Your leaving a review on Amazon or would be greatly appreciated!

    Just finished Koulev. Thoroughly enjoyed the read. I love the delivery and style of writing.
    Interesting and captivating stories of times and worlds that no longer exist. Dennis Cathcart is a true Naturalist/Survivalist. Can’t wait for Book 2.
