"Throughout the clearly written text, Evans emphasizes Cheesman's lifelong response to society's warnings against everything from girls going on bug hunts to women exploring alone: she would go anyway. The attractive illustrations work closely with the narrative, highlighting exciting moments and underscoring important points." -- Booklist
"A lively introduction to Cheesman and her scientific career." -- Booklist
