A Butterfly Journey is the biography of explorer, naturalist, scholar, and artist Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717). Illustrated throughout with color reproductions of Merian's beautiful engravings and watercolors of butterflies, A Butterfly Journey tells of Merian's life in Germany and the Netherlands, her trip to the Dutch colony of Surinam, her work as an advocate for Surinam's slave laborers, and her studies of the anatomy and life cycle of the butterfly. A Butterfly Journey is exquisite and inspirational, highly recommended for public library biography collections, and also is also ideal for gift-giving.
