Book Recommendation: Anthill by E.O. Wilson




I love to read. I just had to share with you all about the novel Anthill by Edward O. Wilson. This book should especially appeal to anyone who loves nature, is interested in ecology preservation, and loved a fine story with an admirable lead character:) An inspirational story of how a boy, in love with local beautiful wildlife spot, explores and learns natures secrets and determines to follow a career path that will help him save it from the most savage ecological predator: man himself. Now if that mini review hasn't convinced you to read the book.. consider this line...
"They were obedient to a simple truth that separates our two species: where humans send their young men to war, ants send their old ladies."
Food for thought, don't you agree.
The author, E. O. Wilson is such an interesting person. You might enjoy checking out his Biodiversity Foundation.

This is a GREAT recommendation. I love E.O. Wilson and thoroughly enjoyed "The Naturalist." Now I'll try this.

Thanks so much,
