• Wild and Fearless: The Life of Margaret Fountaine

Wild and Fearless tells the remarkable story of Victorian lepidopterist Margaret Fountaine. A fearless and free spirit, Margaret Fountaine defied convention to travel the world, pursuing passionate love affairs as ardently as she pursued butterflies. Her ideas of sustainable research were pioneering and sorely needed at a time when amateur collectors and entomologists were destroying native habitats.
