About this book

Better know for his writing on whales, Hoyt here turns his attentions to a much smaller organism, the ant, and invites us to view the world from their perspective. Set in the nature reserve of La Selva in Costa Rica, this book illuminates the lives of individual ants, and follows them into their rich and complex world. Hoyt takes us along as two of the world's most renowned field biologists, Ed Wilson and William Brown, embark on their first expedition together in thirty years to go `ant treasure-hunting' in the tropical jungle.
`This is an unusual and delightful contribution to writing on natural history. Hoyt has entered the world of ants and the myrmecologists who study them, and mastered his subject.' Edward O. Wilson
`A modern-day Gulliver takes us to the captivating world of ants - and, better yet, in the company of the engaging giants of the science. An alluring and richly fascinating account' - Thomas E. Lovejoy.
