LOVE AMONG THE BUTTERFLIES The Travels and Adventures of a Victorian Lady. She collected butterflies by the thousand and men by the dozen, on trips to Syria, Hungary, Tibet, the United States and other farflung places. Lepidopterists classified her as a ''useful collector, perhaps a great one, but not a great scientist. She was apparently in the same category as a collector of men.

This book was the monthly choice of my book club. I have to say that I wasn't really looking forward to reading it, but as I turned the pages it I was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable it was. This lady certainly travelled far and wide to so many countries in a world where no passports were needed and at a time when women didn't travel unaccompanied. There she pursued her vocation to collect butterflies.( and also quite a lot of men along the way). I wondered as I read the book, how different her life would have been if she had not been left an inheritance and therefore been financially independent.
I do feel that the book was not sympathetically edited and we were left wondering how her career and life ended. All in all, an enjoyable read and interesting glimpse into the past.

Often (travel) diaries are getting monotonous after a while but due to a good editor, it was a joy to read and marvel at Margret Fountaine's travels and rather unconventional way of life. Can't wait to read the second half 'Butterflies and old loves'.

Certainly interesting for female travellers, travel historians, butterfly collectors (?)...

Interesting book.......

Highly recommended! I picked this book up at the library a few weeks ago, with moderate expectations. However, I enjoyed it so much, I immediately read the sequel (Butterflies & Late Loves).
The two books make up the lifelong journals of Margaret Fountaine, born in England in the 1860s, who spent 60 years of her life traveling the world, collecting butterflies, and becoming recognized as an entomological authority. When she died in 1940, she bequeathed a locked box to the Norfolk Museum, not to be opened until 1978. When opened at that time, the box was found to contain her journals from her teen years until her death. The early years of the journal cover her childish and painful teenage crushes on various unsuitable men, but a fortunate inheritance provides her with the financial means to travel through Europe and discover her strength, independence, and resourcefulness.
This woman is fearless, and will travel anywhere, assured of her safety by her sheer audacity and her complete confidence in the protection guaranteed by her British citizenship. Early in her travels she meets up with a young Syrian man, Khalil Neimy, 15 years her junior, who travels with her for almost 30 years, as friend, lover, and fellow butterfly collector, and he shares his name on the great butterfly collection she bequeathed to the Castle Museum in Norwich, England. The development of an immature young woman, who has ridiculous crushes on entirely unsuitable young men with whom she has never exchanged even a minute of conversation, to an energetic middle-aged/elderly woman who travels for months alone through South America, Africa and Asia, relying on her ability to swear a blue streak when required (to scare off the natives) is inspirational & incredible.
