They destroy plant diseases. They break down toxins. They plough the earth. They transform forests. They’ve survived two mass extinctions, including the one that wiped out the dinosaur. Not bad for a creature that’s deaf, blind, and spineless. Who knew that earthworms were one of our planet’s most important caretakers? Or that Charles Darwin devoted his last years to studying their remarkable achievements?

Inspired by Darwin, Amy Stewart takes us on a subterranean adventure. Witty, offbeat, charming, and ever curious, she unearths the complex web of life beneath our feet and investigates the role earthworms play in cutting-edge science—from toxic cleanups to the study of regeneration.

    " Loved the part about nematodes, those crazy little parasites! This book pulled me right back to my childhood curiosity with worms. Thanks for bring back to that Amy Stewart, you remind us all to go out and dig and experience our own backyards. Cool. "

    " A light and fun summertime read that will surprise you with how much there is to know about earthworms. I love Stewart's writing, and while this book didn't live up to Flower Confidential, I think that had more to do with the subject matter at hand. I appreciated the incites into Stewart's own garden and her unabashed obsession with her worms. "

    " fascinating look below the soil. Highlights the importance of worms but it a riveting, engaing journalistic style. Great read for non-gardeners too! "
