Back in the 17th century, it was really hard for a woman to succeed. This was not the case for Maria Merian who was considered to be the first ecologist. Maria was really talented at drawing bugs and her work documented the life of butterflies. I am not a huge fan of non-fiction books but this was really interesting and the book had beautiful illustrations.
