ANDREA WULF presents THE INVENTION OF NATURE

Andrea Wulf’s book The Invention of Nature: Alexander von Humboldt’s New World is, according to Choice, a “beautifully written and magnificently illustrated” biography of explorer and naturalist Alexander von Humboldt, whose 34 volumes on his expeditions to Latin America became some of the most influential examples of scientific travel writing of their time, inspiring scientists and thinkers from Charles Darwin to Henry David Thoreau. Andrea approaches the historical figure through “stories of wilderness adventure and academic exchange that flow easily, and her affection for von Humboldt is contagious” (Publishers Weekly).
