The Invention of Nature: Alexander von Humboldt's New World





Andrea Wulf (1972-)
The Invention of Nature:
Alexander von Humboldt’s New World
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2015

Truly a beautiful book about a giant of the 19th century.
I swam in the Humboldt Current and marveled at
this genius who saw all things connected, even me and
the ocean.
