Excellent compilation from writings of scientists, with lively introductions by a scientist who knows how to write for popular consumption. Natural history as experienced by those whose findings have become classics -- with result that here we have stimulating reading for anyone who wants to sample many facets of the field of natural science. Cave paintings to Aristotle to Audubon, Darwin, Maeterlinck, Burroughs, Akely, Huxley, eattie.
