Books That Inspire 2003


 
Life on a Little Known Planet
Howard Ensign Evans


Evans’ book is a fascinating eye-opener about the natural history of insects. He shows that insects have intriguing lives about which very little was (and still is) actually known. There is so much going on in our own backyards and our houses that we know so little about. He encourages us to pause and look around us. Evans makes a strong argument that if we are going to spend billions of dollars to send a man to the moon where we know there is no life, we should be willing to increase funding to study the myriad of life on this earth.
