Review:

A beautiful achievement (The Guardian)

It's a haunting, rich, and tender novel that explores the human side of science fiction in a manner that's all too uncommon. The world it creates is vivid and fascinating, and Snake is a marvellously well realized character (Roger Zelazny)

A splendid tale, combining the sensitivity and attention to mood of the new generation of SF writers with a gripping and well-worked-out adventure (Publishers Weekly)

This is a book like a mountain stream - fast, clean, clear, exciting, beautiful (Ursula K. Le Guin)

An accomplished, compelling work (challengingdestiny.com)

Book Description:

Book Description Gollancz, London, 1978. Hard Cover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First Edition. 313 pages. 420 grams. Gollancz Yellow Jacket. This book is in good ex-library condition with associated markings and attachments and wear commensurate with previous use. The dust jacket is in good condition currently enclosed in clear library protective cover. 'In a world devastated by nuclear warfare, Snake, a healer - one of a small elite dedicated to caring for sick humanity goes wherever her skills are needed. With her she takes the three deadly reptiles through which her cures are effected: a cobra, a rattlesnake and Grass, a small snake with the power of inducing benign dreams and also, if needs be, of smoothing the path between life and death. These dreamsnakes can be bred only with great difficulty, and it is a privilege to be entrusted with one; so when Grass is wantonly killed Snake vows to find another one to take its place. Her search leads her to the city beneath the mountain, where, so she has heard, the offworlders can find dreamsnakes; but here she is harshly repulsed. Next she embarks on a still more perilous journey, herself pursued not only by a malign shadow of whose presence she can never be certain, but also by the man who loves her. To read this tale is an enthralling experience. A novel of great compassion and humanity - but also the work of a born story-teller - it is not surprising that Ursula Le Guin writes of it: " A book like a mountain stream - fast, clean, clear, exciting, beautiful". 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
