The Species Seekers

I love this period in time, the emergence of the amateur naturalist. Both at home and then heading off on perilous jounreys. Those intrepid adveturers obsessed with the next species. Then trying to categories them. Then the expansion of our understanding of the world and our place in it. I really enjouyed this book by Rochard, it covered people I had read about before, but then also unique stories form left of field.
