"Ants are the most warlike of all animals, with colony pitted against colony," writes E.O. Wilson in this late work, collecting fascinating accounts from his 90 years in the natural world. His myrmecological tour takes us to Mozambique and New Guinea, to Dauphin Island in the Gulf of Mexico and even to his parent's overgrown backyard, thrillingly relating his brushes with fire, army, and leafcutter ants as well as more exotic species, with black and white illustrations and photos.
