The Species Seekers: Heroes, Fools, and the Map Pursuit of Life on Earth$5
From the mid-eighteenth century to the early twentieth, a colorful band of amateur naturalists explored the most perilous corners of the planet to discover new life forms. Amid globe-spanning tales of adventure, Conniff recounts a dramatic historical shift, as humans finally discovered the pantheon of life on Earth-and our place within it. A book signing will conclude the event.
