The World of the SpiderBook - 1999
Besides exploring these and other tantalizing aspects of spiders, nature writer Adrienne Mason describes the role of spiders in myth and legend. She also examines how spiders are used in scientific research today and how the use of pesticides and loss of habitat are affecting them.
