Alfred. A. Knopf, 1961. FIRST EDITION, second printing. "It is no simple story, for the balance of the earth's creatures is delicate, complex, and multiple. A change affecting one species may ultimately affect another species with which it has no direct or obvious contact. These chain reactions are inherently fascinating, and the Milnes, out of their wealth of experience, present them in all their color and excitement." Beautifully illustrated with line drawings depicting animals and humanity's relationship to nature. Learn why a visit from a tsetse fly might not be a bad thing. 329 pages.
