Wilson, Edward O.
Wilson is a distinguished biologist and this is his first work of fiction. Anthill tells the story of Raff Cody, an intelligent young boy who looks for critters scuttling about in the woods. Not surprisingly, ant colonies are at the top of his list. As the story evolves, Cody becomes a lawyer and returns home to stop a condo development that threatens his boyhood home. There's lots to like here, and if you have an interest in scientific inquiry, you'll really enjoy this tale.
