THE LANGUAGE OF BUTTERFLIES How Thieves, Hoarders, Scientists, and Other Obsessives Unlocked the Secrets of the World's Favorite Insect

by | Read by Angela Brazil

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Angela Brazil brings spirit and animation to Wendy Williams's personal look at one of nature's most cherished, admired, and vulnerable species. The study of butterflies has never been far from the collecting of specimens, and that pursuit has attracted more than its share of "thieves, hoarders, scientists, and other obsessives." These make for a high romance, for which Brazil proves the spot-on voice. It's truly amazing how far and high butterflies roam, and Williams's narrative takes us around the world and to some of its most obscure research facilities. Informative, engaging, revealing both human and insect behavior, this audiobook offers a satisfying accompaniment to your own backyard studies.
