4.25⭐️

This was such a well done telling of the life and lasting impact of Alexander con Humboldt. I never knew about him before reading this book but I learned about how much he had influenced many of the people in environmental history that I greatly admire. This book starts with his early life and continues through his career and worldly travel till his death; after which it is followed by the influences he had on people in the field.

Schnoebs @Birdsong28 I was originally going to use this as the audiobook but decided to use it for the prompt of a book set in South American because his biggest travels and research on what he‘s known for is from his explorations of South American. That‘s another one for #52booksin52weeks 👍 2mo
Crazeedi Oh crap, I had this from overdrive and left it go back! I need to get it and read, I heard such good things! 2mo
Schnoebs @Crazeedi I really loved it. My favorite was probably the fact that they commented on how much on an impact he had on the entire scientific community and how you see him in the research of other great people in the field 2mo

While I'd rather be reading some amusing fiction, I feel that as a citizen who uses and probably abuses a lot of earth's resources I should get a grip on what we can do to change things.

I'm not participating in #LiteraryLuck, but I like to do the color pics like #GreenReads now that I have all of my books out of storage.

Now that finals are going to be done in 12 hours, I‘m reading a little to calm my brain. I forgot how cool all the graphics are in this book! This one depicts the history of human like species that came out of Africa. Really enjoying getting back into this book!
