    The summer of 1899 is HOT in Calpurnia Virginia Tate's sleepy Texas town, and there aren't a lot of good ways to stay cool. Her mother has a new wind machine from town, but Callie might just have to resort to stealthily cutting off her hair, one sneaky inch at a time. She also spends a lot time at the river with her notoriously cantankerous grandfather, an avid naturalist. It turns out that every drop of river water is teeming with life - all you have to do is look through a microscope!

    Nei prati riarsi della calda stagione texana, Calpurnia non può fare a meno di notare che le cavallette gialle sono molto, molto più grandi delle cavallette verdi. Perché? Sono di due specie diverse? Calpurnia ha sentito parlare del libro di un certo Darwin, in cui si spiega l'origine delle specie animali. Forse può trovare quel libro nella biblioteca pubblica? Sì, ma la bibliotecaria non glielo vuole mostrare. Poco male, quel libro si trova anche a casa sua: nello studio del nonno, il libero pensatore della famiglia.
