Summary, etc.:
"In this fascinating book from the New York Times bestselling author of The Horse, Wendy Williams explores the lives of one of the world's most resilient creatures--the butterfly--shedding light on the role that they play in our ecosystem and in our human lives"-- Provided by publisher.
From butterfly gardens to zoo exhibitions, we've encouraged them to infiltrate our lives. Williams reveals the inner lives of these 'flying flowers' and shows that butterflies are far more intelligent and tougher than we give them credit for. She takes readers to butterfly habitats across the globe and introduces us to not only various species, but to the scientists who have dedicated their lives to studying them. -- adapted from jacket
