About this book

Describes the experiences of the Kistner family during their five entomological expeditions to Africa from 1960 to 1972-3. From hunching over columns of ants for hours on end while seven months pregnant to eating dinner next to Idi Amin, Kistner provides a lively and humour-filled account of the human side of scientific discovery.
