Scoop up a handful of dirt. You are now holding one of life's essential building blocks. The food you eat, the clothes you wear -- even the home you live in -- has its origin in the soil.

Soil may not seem alive, but amazingly, it is home to a multitude of microscopic creatures fighting to survive in an eat-or-be-eaten world. These soil-dwellers play an integral part in the cycle of life that links mammals, reptiles, and insects.

You'll never look at the ground you walk on in the same way once you've picked up A Handful of Dirt -- Raymond Bial's vivid examination of this common, yet precious resource.
