Swamp Rattler, Author Aaron Veselenak
Aaron Veselenak is very interested in rattlesnakes, particularly Michigan's eastern massasauga rattlesnake, or "swamp rattler," as it was aptly names by early settlers. Veselenak has studied this snake for several years and has penned his research and personal experiences, creating Swamp Rattler, an educational and entertaining read about a slice of our natural history. The author's mission, in part, is to convince citizens of the value of preserving the snake-especially because Michigan is where the eastern massasauga is making a last stand. The species is endanged and and hangs by a thread in all other places it calls home. Veselenak wants to reverse this trend. He hoped you will join him.
