Some were scientists, naturalists, and collectors, while others were the wives or daughters of scientists or were simply fascinated and enthused by the natural world. There are fine butterfly drawings by accomplished natural history illustrator Margaret Fountaine- vivid illustrations of Indian natural, cultural, and social history by Olivia Tonge- and detailed bird images by Elizabeth Gould, who married highly regarded ornithologist John Gould and produced more than 600 illustrations for her husbands publications.

Featuring celebrated artworks and rarely-seen gems, this book serves up a visual feast of the never ending wonders of the natural world and the significant role that women have played in observing and documenting it.
