Nancy Marshall was born in New York and moved to Arizona in 1975. She spent many weekends with her family at a cabin outside Prescott. There, she encountered an Arizona Black Rattlesnake. He had stories to tell about his fellow wild creatures—thus was born A RATTLER’S TALE. It was later translated for Spanish-language readers. Nancy defended an innocent citizen jailed by Sheriff Joe Arpaio in 2008 and learned many instances of his reign of popularity—and abuse of power. Nancy believes in your capacity to read, think for yourself, talk with others, and act on your new awareness.
