Clark and Sharks

9780807521878_swimming-with-sharks-512x636Eugenie Clark spent her childhood weekends observing sharks and other aquatic life at an aquarium and grew up to become an expert in sharks with her own marine lab and aquarium.  How cool is that?  Super cool!  Others might not have believed in her or threw up road blocks because she was a woman and Japanese American, but that didn’t stop her.  She observed, took notes, observed some more, took more notes.  “Sharks are magnificent and misunderstood,” she said, and she set out to prove it and to protect all kinds of sharks from humans.

How much do I love all the books coming out about women in science?  A TON!  A BUNCH!  A LOT!  Add this one to the list.
