Beginning with Carolyn Swagerle's victory over arachnophobia, The Legacy of Annie Rose presents the extraordinary story that follows her purchase of a Grammostola rosea, or Chilean rose, tarantula. In the midst of the relationship with Annie that ensues and months after she brings this giant arachnid home, a crisis develops that throws her life into chaos. Annie unexpectedly lays eggs. Tarantula experts state that the eggs will surely not survive to develop under the hand of a novice. Nevertheless, because a minute possibility exists that they might, she prepares. Astonishment and discovery become daily companions as she is plunged into the world of tarantulas in a way she never expected. This educational, photo-documented account contains nearly 200 color photographs.
