Synopsis

After 25 years on a farm in the Ozarks, award-winning writer and naturalist Sue Hubbell moved to a small town on the coast of Maine. There, in the pools, tides, and thickets, she found a vast array of creatures that aroused her considerable curiosity. Join Hubbell on a unique tour of the world of invertebrates. From humpbacked camel crickets to glow worms, from horseshoe crabs to elegantly-furred sea mice, Hubbell offers vivid descriptions and fascinating details about these superb examples of survival. She also introduces some experts in the field-scientists who share their enthusiasm and knowledge. Waiting for Aphrodite grew from hours of field observation and reflects the days Hubbell spent at the Library of Congress augmenting her information. Entertaining for layman and scientist alike, it is both warmly personal and carefully researched. Barbara Caruso's rich voice is perfect for this eloquent, engaging book.
