Nature's Explorers : Adventurers who recorded the wonder of the natural world Hardback
Nature's Explorers celebrates the individuals who made great personal endeavours in order to document the natural world.
Their findings revolutionised our understanding of nature and gave birth to the modern fields of geography, evolutionary biology, oceanography and anthropology.
From ground-breaking theorists such as Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace to evocative artists like Ferdinand Bauer and John James Audubon, these explorers shared an ambition to illuminate new worlds and each embodied the spirit of the Enlightenment and the Scientific Revolution.
