Most Helpful Customer Reviews

This is the novel that extends the original short story "Of Mist, and Grass, and Sand". Story of a post-apocalyptic medic who uses snake venom (with alterations) to heal. This is her story of how she sets out to replace her dreamsnake after a treatment goes wrong and the valuable snake is killed. Good premise for the story, good characterisations, a bit of romance and good twist at the end. This is a story I go back to read again. Heartily recommended.
This is one of the best written books I have ever read. Even tough it was published in the 70's it stays on the edge of our knowledge and hints at many yet undiscovered possibilities for science. A bit like Dune, 40th Anniversary Edition (Dune Chronicles, Book 1), the universe unfolded is extremely rich and suggesting. The main plot follows Snake, a woman healer who uses a rattler, a cobra and an alien "dreamsnake" to help people. The background is a strange post apocalyptic world where high tech mingles with a society sent in some aspects back to the middle ages. This ageless book has followed me half around the world, and now and then when I retake it the pleasure of reading a master story is undiminished.
I love this book!
