    The Traveling Naturalists by Clare Lloyd is about the origins of natural history which recounts the progression of zoology and exploration through the past two centuries while profiling the lives and achievements of eight major naturalists of Victorian England For me it was the perfect choice to fulfill my nonfiction book reuirement as I have always been interested in animals especially in historical and scientific contextsI was first drawn to this book by its cover While many advocate for not judging a book by its cover this book’s vintage looking cover is a good representation of the style of the overall book Beyond its outer appearance however the book itself is actually uite enlightening as well Aside from its inherently uniue topic what keeps it engaging through all of its 150 pages is the point of view in which the information and stories are presented Natural history is a little understood field thus people tend to gather what they know and create stereotypes In films and books viewers have become well acuainted with the stereotypical evil naturalistPaddingtonfilm Smells Like Dognovel etc In this book however all the information is presented from an objective point of view and the author does not laud nor denounce the people mentioned like some historical books do Further the book discusses many un explored aspects of 19th century science and exploration and what stood out most to me were the parts about the social aspect of being a naturalist Lloyd strategically deemphasizes certain voyages mentioned during the book in order to talk about the personal lives of the naturalists such as one female naturalist’s dilemma between the social acceptability of traditional Victorian women’s clothing and the comfort and practicality of men’s clothing Later the author also explains the motivation for the naturalists using the example of Sir John Franklin whose ultimately disastrous expedition into the Canadian Arctic was funded endorsed and monitored by the then British government Similarly the author presents to us the context of the popularity of natural exploration in Victorian times writing about how the idea was romanticized in popular culture such as the song “Lady Franklin’s Lament” written about the widower of a naturalist lost at sea In addition to the objectivity of this book’s author the style of the book is also a major selling point To start it is unlike the non fiction books I usually read as my usual picks are contemporary and theory based rather than historical This made it uite refreshing to read given the steadfast and confident tone it is told it Aside from this however the book’s style is also distinctive from similar books in both the author’s choice of topics and language Unlike many history books this one does not try to make parallels between each subjectin this case person explored by writing a laundry list of the accomplishmentsbackgrounds of each one Instead she takes a pragmatic route by putting in what she believes to be most interesting or outstanding about each one This leads to the next point which is the level of seriousness of the author Too often do non fiction authors choose the most ’scholarly' topics and detail those extensively to the point of irrelevance to the reader In The Traveling Naturalists however Lloyd clearly put thought into what she believes would interest the reader; interesting and sometimes shocking facts like how one explorer was rud to have a fish fetish The illustrations and authentic hand etchings of animals and natural habitats add perfectly to the eclectic and intriguing information presented in the book and the scientific ones are successful in illustrating the author’s point at timesThis was one of my uniue reads this year and it showed me just how variant non fiction books can be The novel’s objective point of view allowed me a broader understanding of its topic while its style kept me engaged and visually supported my comprehension of the book In general this was a both informative and entertaining read and I would definitely recommend it to those interested in natural history and exploration

    Good book about Victorian science and exploration There are lots of books about specific naturalists especially the famous ones like Darwin or Huxley but Lloyd chose to focus on some less commonly known people like Mary Kingsley yay for lady naturalists and Leopold McClintock I knew about his role in the Franklin search but not about other scientific endeavors One complaint Why is Mary Kingsley always called by her first name but the men by their last names? At no point in any of the men's chapters do we have Leopold found Franklin relics etc but Kingsley's section is filled with stuff like Mary found some new species of fish This really annoys me and not just because I'm one of those evil man hating feminists but because of the inconsistency But then the book was published in the 1980s so I suppose I can cut Lloyd some slack notice I didn't call her Clare
