Aaron Sachs' book, The Humboldt Current was the book which introduced me to Alexander von Humboldt and put him into a larger context. Andrea Wulf's book on von Humboldt made him more tangible in a way. He became a person who had many interests and acted on all of them. He was a keen observer of all sorts of phenomena and he wanted to experience as much as he could. On top of this, his writing (translated) made him accessible. Why have we not learned more from this man?
