Summary
When her father and brother are called away to war, Ma Jiang finds a unique way to trap the orange ants that her mother sells in order to make a living. Capturing and selling orange ants (thus named because they prey on insects that eat oranges) to the owners of orange groves has been the livelihood of the Ma family for many years. One day, though, the men in the family are taken away to serve in the emperor's army and no one is left to search for the ants in the high trees and wild bamboo; neither Jiang nor her mother knows how. Jiang's mother weaves to support them, but her meager earnings aren't enough to feed them or Bao, the baby of the family. When all seems lost, it is clever Jiang who finds the answer to their dilemma in Bao's sticky little fingers, and gets the Ma's back into the orange ant business
