By Diane Pfister


SPIDERBITE is a harrowing autobiographical account of a mother's gripping and emotionally charged plight to save the life of her seven-year-old daughter after being bitten by a Brown Recluse Spider. Doctors are neither able to diagnose nor effectively treat Rachel as the venom leaves her fighting for her life in a coma. Diane, in her desperation, discovers a modern-day Medicine Man, Peter Bigfoot, who lives off-grid in Arizona. He makes herbal cures and miraculously has the centuries-old antidote for that particular spider bite. He manages to send it to Diane, but doctors have other plans.
