Title: "Kindred Nature: Victorian and Edwardian Women Embrace the Living World" by Barbara T. Gates Book Review
Author: Norwood, Vera
Subject(s): Barbara Gates
Abstract: The most famous figure in Kindred Nature is Beatrix Potter, the author of the Peter Rabbit stories. Potter's talents in mycology and scientific illustration are less well known. Moreover, why Potter turned from her pursuits in nature study to write animal stories for children has been given very little attention. Feminist historians of science are beginning to examine the life stories of women like Potter to expand our understandings of women's contributions to the biological sciences. Barbara Gates practices such a retrieval in her study of British women's roles in nature study and appreciation during the Victorian and Edwardian periods.
