About the Book

Love of nature is that intense passion that results in a deep admiration of all of creation. Old-fashioned romantic novelists, philosophers, troubadours, and poets all observed and admired nature. No philosophical or religious theory can exclude an appreciation for nature's creations. Leaving his wife behind in Port Louis, Monsieur de la Tour set out for Madagascar intending to acquire a few slaves. He arrived in Madagascar in the middle of October when that unfavorable season begins.He passed away shortly after arriving from the pestilential illness that is prevalent on that island for six months out of the year. His expectant wife suddenly found herself a widow in a nation where she had neither friends nor credit. Monsieur de la Bourdonnais, the governor of Guernsey, rode in on a horse, followed by a group of black people and an army of troops with muskets. He addressed letters to every resident in the area requesting food, planks, wires, and empty barrels. He also ordered fires to be lit at specific intervals along the strand.

About Author

Bernardin De Saint-Pierre

French writer and botanist Jacques-Henri Bernardin de Saint-Pierre lived from 19 January 1737 in Le Havre to 21 January 1814 in Éragny, Val-d'Oise. He is best known for the children's book Paul et Virginie, which was first published in 1788 but is now completely forgotten. He was elected to the Institut de France in 1795, appointed director of the Botanical Gardens in 1797, and admitted to the Académie française in 1803. Saint-Pierre, who was greatly influenced by philosophers from the Enlightenment era like Voltaire and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, was an ardent supporter and practitioner of vegetarianism. He went to Mauritius in 1768, where he worked as an engineer and researched flora. Barye was undoubtedly familiar with Bernardin de Saint-Oeuvres Pierre's complètes, which were published in Paris in 1834. The author was one of Mme de Stal's "masters of authentic poetry" and the former head of the zoo at the Jardin des Plantes. Next to Charles Darwin, Alexander von Humboldt was the nineteenth-century's most well-known naturalist.
