Overview

Into the Deep: The Life of Naturalist and Explorer William Beebe by David Sheldon

"To be a naturalist is better than to be a king."
—William Beebe's journal, December 31, 1893

William Beebe was a pioneer in the field of ecology, the father of deep-sea exploration, and an avid conservationist. This picture-book biography charts the life of this famous naturalist from his childhood studying animals in New Jersey through his later years studying birds at the research station he started in Trinidad.

Back matter includes quotes from Beebe, a glossary of terms, and an illustrated cross section of the Bathysphere, which Beebe helped design.
