About this title


Rod Murphy's religious allegory and satirical fable uses the natural world and its inhabitants to enact a drama of epic proportions--the ultimate clash of good and evil. Populated by symbolic animal characters, the Man's Farm becomes a stage where the biblical Book of Joel comes to life.

Amanda the wasp, displaced and alone on the Man's Farm, must fight to survive in a hostile, polluted world. After she joins the nest of another wasp species,her new home proves malevolent and treacherous. She must combat petty jealousy and internecine conflict to ensure her own survival and that of her new home. When a dubious alliance is formed between her adoptive wasp family and the hornets, Amanda realizes something is gravely wrong, but what exactly is afoot? And when she realizes that hordes of destructive locusts are coming, bringing pestilence and starvation with them, will her nestmates believe her and act accordingly, or will civilization as Amanda knows it come to an end?
