about

A uniquely personal look about butterflies and about the people who love them -- which, surely, is most of us.
   Much more than just another field guide or a natural history of butterflies. Rainbow Dust explores the ways in which butterflies delight and inspire us all, naturalists and non-naturalists alike. In this uniquely eloquent and deeply personal book, naturalist Peter Marren explores the special place that butterflies hold in our hearts, in our cultural lives and in our imagination and recalls his own lifetime's obsession with these ephemeral creatures
   Rainbow Dust is a celebration of butterflies; one shot through with a sense of wonder but also of sorrow at what we are losing.
PETER MARREN is a prize-winning wildlife writer, journalist and authority on invertebrate folklore and names. He is the co-author with Richard Mabey of Bugs Britannica.
