Summary
"Introduces readers to Evelyn Cheesman who forged her own path at a time when women rarely went to college, much less worked as veterinarians or entomologists."--Provided by publisher
Summary
Back in 1881, when Evelyn Cheesman was born, English girls were expected to be clean and dressed in frilly dresses. But Evelyn crawled in dirt and collected glow worms in jars. When girls grew up they were expected to marry and look after children. But Evelyn took charge of the London Zoo insect house, filling it with crawling and fluttering specimens and breathing life back into the dusty exhibits
