Description

Karen Beil chronicles the life of a ground-breaking scientist.

From his boyhood exploring the woods of Sweden to his student days in Holland; in readable, relatable prose we see Carl Linnaeus attempt to identify a mysterious animal given to him by the king, growing a rare banana plant in Amsterdam and debunking stories of dragons. Thoroughly researched and generously illustrated, What Linnaeus Saw offers a glimpse into the life of one of modern science’s founding thinkers.
