Whit Gibbons possesses the rare talent of conveying the challenge and excitement of scientific inquiry. A research ecologist who specializes in the study of reptiles and amphibians, he gives accounts of work in the fields that are as readable as good short stories. Their Blood Runs Cold is entertaining, informative reading that not only enhances our understanding of a unique group of animals, but also provides excellent insight into the mind and character of a research scientist. Thirty illustrations complement the text.

Whit Gibbons is Professor Emeritus of Ecology, University of Georgia.

"A superbly written, personalized narrative on amphibians and reptiles. . . . This book can be read and enjoyed by almost everyone with interests in people, research, and/or animals."

“Dr. Gibbons's book is a pleasant and instructive mixture of herpetological lore, lively anecdote, humor, and conservation ethics. He writes with clarity and verve, and the book will give the general reader a more intelligent and sympathetic understanding of reptiles and amphibians, and of the scientists who study them.”
—Archie Carr

“This book is absolutely delightful -- a rare mix of fun and frolic and sound zoology. I wish there were more authors capable of such writing.”
—Roger W. Barbour
