RATTLESNAKES IN THE ROCK CHALK

I'm not making this up.

Rattlesnakes in the Rock Chalk is the second book in the Kaw Trilogy written by Chester Sullivan, associate professor at the University of Kansas.

Amazon describes this new book: This Kansas epic spans one hundred and fifty years from the steamboat adventure of a fourteen-year-old girl, told in the manner of Mark Twain, to the present day. It mingles mystery, history, herpetology, and romance until quiet meditation erupts in violent action threatening the lives of these resilient people, all scrabbling to find their emotional toehold in the layered limestone - early settlers called it rock chalk.
