This classic book is natural history at its best. The world of insects is Howard Evans' little-known planet, the realm of the cockroach and the cricket, the wasp and the bedbug. With the precision and authority of a distinguished biologist, and the wit and grace of an accomplished writer, Howard Evans muses on the uniqueness of dragonflies, the romantic impulses of butterflies, the musicianship of crickets, and the mysteries of the firefly. The insect realm never fails to enlighten, entertain, and sometimes provoke: as Evans asks, Is the fly a more intricate machine than he appears, or are we less clever than we suppose ourselves to be?
