The Serpent's Gift : There are many serpents in Lee's first novel: the scar on Eula Small's forehead; the snake her son LaRue meets during his adolescent summer exploring his extended family's roots in the South; Miss Snake, the chameleon-like character featured in dozens of LaRue's tall tales. Serpents are survivors, and so are the Smalls and the Staples, the intermingled African American families whose twentieth-century experience is Lee's subject here. Through several generations of births and deaths, isolation and intimacy, painful but essential memories, and the liberating joy of nature and of the imagination, the Smalls and Staples share secrets, sorrows, and always, stories, with each family member finding a way to survive.
