Time to get myself acquainted with the great Alexander von Humboldt while eating chocolate and drinking tea. #alexandervonhumboldt #andreawulf #theinventionofnature

The Invention of Nature, by Andrea Wulf is easily my favorite book I’ve read all year! Since I moved to Humboldt I figured I should learn about the scientist who the county is named for. I remember briefly learning about him in my biogeography course as an undergrad, but I would say most people have no idea who is his. I am now borderline obsessed with him, and while I was reading this, most of my conversations would being with, “Did you know that Humboldt…”. I learned a lot and found it to be very inspiring.
Here is the description from Amazon:
Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) was the most famous scientist of his age, a visionary German naturalist and polymath whose discoveries forever changed the way we understand the natural world. Among his most revolutionary ideas was a radical conception of nature as a complex and interconnected global force that does not exist for the use of humankind alone. In North America,
Humboldt’s name still graces towns, counties, parks, bays, lakes, mountains, and a river. And yet the man has been all but forgotten. In this illuminating biography, Andrea Wulf brings Humboldt’s extraordinary life back into focus: his prediction of human-induced climate change; his daring expeditions to the highest peaks of South
America and to the anthrax-infected steppes of Siberia; his relationships with iconic figures, including Simón Bolívar and Thomas Jefferson; and the lasting influence of his writings on Darwin, Wordsworth, Goethe, Muir, Thoreau, and many others. Brilliantly researched and stunningly written, The Invention of Nature reveals the myriad ways in which Humboldt’s ideas form the foundation of modern environmentalism—and reminds us why they are as prescient and vital as ever. . . . .

Alexander von Humboldt’s ‘Naturgemalde’ is a depiction of a mountain in the Andes Chimborazo, which he climbed in 1802 - it is illustrated as a web of nature where all of life is connected. He was a man who investigated nature not just with scientific methods but also by creating artistic masterpieces in the process. He showed plants distributed according to altitude, such as palms in the lower tropical zone, and fern-like shrubs in a more temperate climate.
The writing on the sides display temperatures, humidity and atmospheric pressure, as well as the species of animals and plants found in the different altitudes within the mountain diagram. The heights of other mountains across the world are also listed along the outline of Chimborazo, to be able link connections with them.
In Andrea Wulf’s words: “The variety and richness, but also the simplicity of the scientific information depicted, was unprecedented…The Naturgemalde showed for the first time that nature was a global force with corresponding climate zones across continents. Humboldt saw ‘unity in variety’.

So I've been right into audiobooks lately, so good for travel, you can just close your eyes and have someone read you a story, taking you to wherever ;) I'm currently on 'The Invention of Nature' which is the story of explorer Alexander von Humboldt. On one of his adventures he were to a friend of his, ending his letter with, 'and you, dearest, how is your monotonous life?' 😂 imagine penning back an answer! Hoping my dearest and I never sink into monotony!! Any book recommendations for me to listen to??? 📖😊

Statia from atop the Quill, April 2012. I'm reading The Invention of Nature and it has stirred up memories of my visit to Statia way back in 2012, so I revisited the photographs I took while there and found this nice view of the island and surrounding waters. While making the trek up the Quill I was met by the occasional adventurous goat and chicken that decided to scale the volcano's slopes. I also witnessed many hermit crabs tuck into their shells and throw themselves down the sides of the Quill as a defense mechanism. I often wandered how long it had taken these crabs to make their way up the Quill and how this compared to the seconds it took for them to roll down it. #statia #dutchantilles #volcano #steustatius #alexandervonhumboldt #theinventionofnature
