Red Hourglass Review
"Kill. Eat. Mate. Die." What a great summary of this chilling, fascinating book by Gordon Grice, a college Humanities & English teacher. Chapters include those on the Black Widow spider, Mantid, Tarantula, Brown Recluse spider, and others. My favorite line: "A skeptical reader may point that, as he sits in the comfort of his den in the middle of his town reading this book, he's in virtual no danger of being eaten by anybody. Good for you, sir; you rank with the termite."
