Item description for Ynes Mexia: Botanist And Adventurer by Durlynn Anema...

Details the life and accomplishments of the amateur botantist and adventurer.

From The Book Jacket
Ynes Mexia was fifty years old when she found her true calling. Stuck in an unhappy marriage and living on a ranch in Mexico, her father's home country, she suffered a nervous breakdown. Sent to San Francisco for treatment, Mexia was quickly drawn into the budding environmentalist movement there, joining the Save-the-Redwoods League and the fledgling Sierra Club. Regaining the American citizenship she had given up as a young woman, she left her old life behind and threw herself into the study of botany.She embarked on a series of expeditions, often accompanied only by native guides, travelling the wilds of South America and Mexico well into her senior years. A prolific collector, Mexia's legacy remains important today. Her story traces the journey of a shy young girl from a stilted but conformist lifestyle to one full of adventure and groundbreaking achievement. Join Ynes Mexia as she forges her own path in Ynes Mexia: Botanist and Adventurer.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ynes Mexia: Botanist And Adventurer?

It refutes the common notion that great scientists began early on in life  Jan 14, 2006
Ynes Mexia was fifty years old and stuck in an unhappy marriage on a ranch in Mexico when she suffered a nervous breakdown, was sent to San Francisco for treatment, and joined the environmentalist movement there. Her study of botany and series of expeditions throughout South America when she was into her senior years makes for quite a different biography in Durlynn Anema's Ynes Mexia: Botanist And Adventurer: it refutes the common notion that great scientists began early on in life.
