The women in these pages led amazing lives. Some encountered pirates, some witnessed historic earthquakes, some received visits from the Queen. Each was a true heroine who contributed dramatically to plant knowledge before the word botany even existed. Hundreds of years have passed, and their names have been largely forgotten. Here are the remarkable stories of their lives and work, that we may know them and that their stature be reclaimed and celebrated anew. This class will explore the courage, determination and intelligence throughout their endeavors that was too often barely acknowledged.
