Insects In A Landscape (Hardcover)
When I first started writing Insects in a Landscape, I was thinking of the different parts of the world as we know it that insects live in. As events with insects came to mind, I began to see that I was finding them simply as personal experiences. Here was no grand scheme, most of it of our own designing, laid out like a jigsaw puzzle that simply needed putting together by me for you the reader. The result was a series of stories lifted more or less from the hands of the insects themselves and gathered into words and pages. So this book is basically a series of letters, written bit by bit as their world came to me, and hopefully now to you as a place you, too, can enter. With best wishes for a journey into fun, not too far from anyplace you are, Millard C. Davis Millard C.
