Synopsis
Enter the world of Henry Roach-Dairier: a future world where humans no longer exist. Insects, greatly enlarged and intelligent, dominate. Ants live communal lives, dedicated to each other, while roaches are materialistic and self-centered. But both species are chemically dependent on plastic, mined from the ruins of the extinct Duo Pods, and the most valuable resource of the insect world. Henry, son of a roach adopted by ants, tries to bridge the canyon of differences between these vying ideologies and cultures. The Re-Creation of Roacheria, the third book of the trilogy, tells Henry's own story. The adult Henry is an enigma. Most members of New South Dairy Colony 50 consider him too roach-like, even after he grows beyond the high jinx of his youth. Influencial roaches consider his ways of Antism, and the fact that he is of mixed variety, dangerous to their power structure. Hatreds dating back to the days of Henry's great-grandfather rise again in an attempt to destroy him and the community that is dedicated to the ways of his grandfather Antony, and which Henry seeks to build in Roacheria. Henry and his supporters realize that if the two species cannot come together in true peace, they will bring themselves to the same end as the Duo Pods--extinction.
