About this title


This is the most comprehensive and interesting book on bugs written to date. Chapters include, "The Universe as Seen from a Suburban Porch," "Year of the Locust," and "Water Lizards and Aerial Dragons." Howard Ensign Evans does a remarkable job explaining the appetites, jobs, and dangers of every possible crawling, flying and leaping insect. Even the lowly mosquito deserves respect and has a reason for being here, according to Evans. A real treat for every listener.

About the Author:

Howard Ensign Evans is a highly respected scholar and entomologist, having acquired years of knowledge while at the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard University. He is responsible for the extensive updating of the Entomology Department at Colorado State University.
