Amy,

A few years ago I interviewed Glynis Ridley, the author of the book about Jeanne Baret. If it interests you, here is a review of the book and a link to the interview.

...and thank you, Amy, for the “list”.  How about adding one more:  “On the Road with John James Audubon”, Mary Durant and Michael Harwood.  Another good read for a snowy day (at least here in Vermont!).

      A few years ago I read Kate Furbish and the Flora of Maine, which lead to reading Margaret Mee's Amazon, both were fascinating.  Mark Catesby was another interesting one.  I wondered if anyone has suggestions for books on other similar botanist explorers?

      Thanks!
