  1. Nice pictures. They make me think of the book: The Discovery of Jeanne Baret: A Story of Science, the High Seas, and the First Woman to Circumnavigate the Globe by Glynis Ridley

    Jeanne Baret was on an expedition that was commanded by Louis-Antoine de Bougainville. The bougainvillea was named for him after it was found in South America.
