Synopsis:

Contemplating the mysteries of time--geological, biological, and personal--Hubbell writes of the evolution of life on this planet and the evolution of her own life, from her Michigan childhood in a house next to a graveyard to beekeeping in the Ozarks and finally to a tower by the sea in Maine.


Review:

Naturalist Hubbell (Broadsides from Other Orders: A Book of Bugs, LJ 3/1/93) investigates the little-known world of invertebrates: camel crickets, horseshoe crabs, spiders, millipedes, bees, fireflies, pill bugs, sponges, corals, earthworms, sea urchins, and Aphrodite, the sea mouse. Hubbell interviews the experts on each species, and, combining their knowledge with her own reading and study, presents the biology and behavior of these animals in interesting, accessible, and well-documented essays. (A bibliography follows each chapter.) Hubbell also uses these animals' lives and histories to explore the larger issues of diversity, evolution, taxonomy, and conservation of species. Complemented by black-and-white drawings, these thoughtful essays will fascinate readers who enjoy well-written natural history. Recommended for all libraries. Sue O'Brien, Downers Grove P.L., IL

Library Journal, 3/1/99

Review:

"Hubbell is a master of the science writer's necessary art of explaining--what is taxonomy, cladistics, punctuated equilibrium (or punk eek); what distinguishes an animal from a plant."

David Walton, New York Times Book Review, 07/13/1999
