Secrets of the Sea

The Story of Jeanne Power, Revolutionary Marine Scientist

by Evan Griffith and Joanie Stone
Hardback
Publication Date: 09/03/2021
  $30.80
The curiosity, drive, and perseverance of the nineteenth-century woman scientist who pioneered the use of aquariums to study ocean life are celebrated in this gorgeous, empowering picture book.

How did a nineteenth-century dressmaker revolutionize science? Jeanne Power was creative: she wanted to learn about the creatures that swim beneath the ocean waves, so she built glass tanks and changed the way we study underwater life forever.Jeanne Power was groundbreaking: she solved mysteries of sea animals and published her findings at a time when few of women's contributions to science were acknowledged.Jeanne Power was persistent: when records of her research were lost, she set to work repeating her studies. And when men tried to take credit for her achievements, she stood firm and insisted on the recognition due to her.

Jeanne Power was inspiring, and the legacy of this pioneering marine scientist lives on in every aquarium.
