Description
Truth is often stranger than fiction within the history of natural science, as is evidenced by these 22 adventurous and occasionally alarming tales of men and women risking life and limb in the name of broadening human knowledge. Among these are Maria Sibylla Merian, who with her daughter traveled to Surinam in 1699 to study the life cycles of local spiders, plants, and moths; Alexander von Humboldt (the "greatest traveling scientist who ever lived," according to Charles Darwin) and his travels down the Amazon; and American paleontologist Roy Chapman, upon whom Indiana Jones is apparently based, who was the first to find dinosaur eggs in the Gobi desert.
