Anthill:A novel is the tale of Wilsons alter ego, a bug-loving Eagle Scout with the venerable Southern name of Raphael Semmes Cody, who grows up exploring nature in an old growth wilderness outside Mobile, Alabama.
....most first-time novelists arent octogenarians. Nor are they, typically, the worlds top expert on ants. They havent been famous / notorious since the 1975 publication of their scientific masterwork, Sociobiology, either. Nor are they the chief inventor of the influential cause of preserving biodiversity.
TOPICS: Books/Literature; Outdoors; Science
KEYWORDS: alabama; bookreview; boyscout; bugliving; bugloving
Sounds like a good read. Takes me back to my yoot. Didn't grow up to be biologist, but did grow up in Alabama, was an Eagle Scout, did have a large bug collection, and did and still spend a lot of time in the wilderness.

I changed the keyword from "bug-living" to "bug-loving". Bug-living is more accurate now, with the weather warming up the ants are on the march - from 2mm to 2cm in length. A battle is just starting, and with whatever pesticides I can find I'll hopefully win again (as in past years).
