This tale of an expedition of Venezuelan ants north into America (they end up in NY) is breathtaking. Physiological and social ant-info abound but these details merely back up the gripping story. With ferocious battles, double-crosses and these bizarre humans everywhere (still seen as inferiour to our protagonist) I couldn't put this down. Several scenes in the film 'Antz' must have been lifted straight from this classic.
He wrote the forward. It's one page long. The rest of the book is by F. P. Grove. Imagine my disappointment in finding out that the "co-author" who I purchased the book for really had nothing to do with the writing of the novel.Despite all of the mentions of his name on the page, he did not write this book.
