Reviews

"Combining biography and autobiography, Mrs. Comstock interweaves in this book the story of her personal and professional life with that of her distinguished scientist husband, John Henry Comstock. She tells of the early experiences with a vividness and clarity that will give the reader the feeling of sharing in them. She tells of the Comstock's mutual interests and ambitions while both were students at Cornell University: the hardships they encountered as struggling young scientists; Dr. Comstock's success as an entomologist, author, and lecturer; and Mrs. Comstock's contributions as an artist and pioneer in the development of nature study."
