About this book

War weary after writing a book about Iraq, Peter Laufer joked before an audience that his next book would be about butterflies. The result: an invitation to a butterfly preserve in Nicaragua. From there he stumbled into a theater of intrigue full of strange and nefarious characters - all in pursuit of one of nature's most delicate creatures. Set in locales throughout the World, this fascinating book takes us into a behind-the-scenes world sure to alter our view the next time we delight in the colorful fluttering of butterflies in our yards.
