Wicked Bugs


From the world's most painful hornet, to the flies that transmit deadly diseases,
to millipedes that stop traffic,
to the "bookworks" that devour libraries,
to the Japanese beetles munching on your roses,
Wicked Bugs delves into the extraordinary powers of six- and eight-legged creatures.
Intricate and strangely beautiful etchings and drawings capture diabolical bugs of all shapes
and sizes in this mixture of history, science, murder, and intrigue that begins-but does't end- in your own backyard.


Wicked Plants


A tree that sheds poison daggers; a glistening red seed that stops the heart; a shrub that causes paralysis; a vine that strangles; and a leaf that triggered a war. In Wicked Plants, it’s an A to Z of plants that kill, maim, intoxicate, and otherwise offend. You’ll learn which plants to avoid (like exploding shrubs), which plants make themselves exceedingly unwelcome (like the vine that ate the South), and which ones have been killing for centuries (like the weed that killed Abraham Lincoln's mother).
