Snakes, Alligators, and Broken Hearts: Journeys of a Biologist's Son
by Sneed B. Collard III
Bucking Horse Books, 2015
I don't think that children (or adults, for that matter) wonder as much about the lives of nonfiction writers as they do about writers of fiction. Reading Snakes, Alligators, and Broken Hearts made me wonder why. While Sneed B. Collard III has written eleven books of children's fiction (one under a pseudonym), he has been most prolific in writing children's nonfiction, mostly about the natural world, and historical biographies.
