Featuring eye-popping macro-photography and captivating stories, this beautiful volume is a cross between an encyclopedia and an adventure tale.

A fly with no mouth, a hydraulic-powered spider, a freeze-proof caterpillar, and a deadly message coded in light pulses—are such things found only in exotic places like Africa or the Amazon basin? Follow the author and his family as they discover these wonders and many more in a single two-acre Ohio backyard. And don't be surprised if this book puts you in the mood to strike out on a backyard safari of your own.
