Re 'Collecting Ladies' Just in case anyone is using this book as a research tool, I'd like to mention to be mindful that it is not totally accurate. To firm up any facts you may like to contact the National Herbarium of Victoria, Australia.

Thanks for the wonderful list for summer reading

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!

 

Amy
