Riassunto: Book by Greenberg, Lorna, Horwitz, Margot F.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-9-Each of these series entries profiles half a dozen key figures in the specific fields. The chapters open with an interest-grabbing experience from the subject's life, then shift to a chronological narrative from childhood on. Along with the biographical information, readers are given some of the scientific knowledge of the person's era, providing needed context. Early geologist James Hutton, for example, made assertions about the Earth's age that challenged not only the scientists of his day, but also religious beliefs, which were even harder to overcome. The chronological arrangement helps to give a sense of how individual fields progress over time, and how scientists benefit from the work of their predecessors. Each book covers a span of a couple of centuries, and concludes with a fairly modern example. The writing is lively enough to engage readers with an interest in the topic. The authors generally focus on the people's work and careers, yet they emerge as distinct individuals. While the featured geologists are all men, key female contributors to the field are noted in the introduction to Pioneers. Archeologists Gertrude Bell and Kathleen Kenyon, along with Howard Carter and Hiram Bingham, are profiled in Digging. Black-and-white photos, reproductions, and occasional maps appear in both volumes. In addition to the life stories, the titles offer useful perspectives on the challenges of scientific careers over the past two centuries.
