Plant Hunters—The Stories of Two Woman Botanists

by Amy Drorbaugh

Step outside into nature and look around. Do you see the trees, notice the grass, and smell the scent of the woods? Ann Atkins discovered her love for plants when she was just a little girl. Following her father, she discovered beauty in the world around here. Ynes Mexia struggled through grief and loneliness for much of her life. When she was in her fiſties, she, too, discovered a passion for plants. As you read about these amazing botanists and their adventures, remember that whether you discover your life passion at the age of five or fiſty-five, it is never too late, nor too early, to follow your dreams.
