Description - Bright Paradise by Peter Raby

Inspired by Darwin and his voyages on the "Beagle", a new generation of naturalists and scientists set out from Britain to explore tropical forests and mountain ranges. Some of them were entrepreneurs - many were dependent on selling their specimens to finance their trips - but they were also scrupulous and sensitive observers. This book traces some of the extraordinary journeys of these Victorian travellers.
