These six female naturalists were really fascinating to me, even though I'd only heard a bit about a couple of them. They were pioneers in their fields, looking at things a different way, perhaps, because they were not immediately accepted into mainstream, male dominated science. This book talks about their personal histories and how they shaped their studies of nature. The women profiled are: Maria Sibylla Merian, Anna Botsford Comstock, Frances Hamerstrom, Rachel Carson, Miriam Rothschild, and Jane Goodall. ( )
