Originally published in 1947, Consider Her Ways is Frederick Philip Grove's most unique book. In the tradition of Orwell's Animal Farm, Grove examines the idea of a utopian society through the story of a group of traveling ants who find themselves in North America. An amateur scientist encounters the colony and makes telepathic contact with an elder of the ant community. The ant infuses the scientist with her memory and uses him as a medium through which she tells the colony's incredible story. It is a tale that holds up a mirror to human culture, demonstrating to both worlds the parallels and contrasts between the pastoral ways of the ants and the North American life of excess.
This classic novel is back in print for the first time in 20 years. Fans of speculative fiction will be delighted to see that Grove's prose is as fresh as it was 50 years ago.
