For more than one hundred years, the Field Museum’s dioramas have engaged the imaginations of visitors of all ages, drawing them into vivid encounters with the wonders of our natural world. Theatres of Nature takes the reader on a journey around the globe, from the Kalahari desert to the Himalayas, to encounter some of nature’s most impressive animals in their natural habitats. Beginning with the rich history of the personalities involved in creating these tableaux, this volume is an in-depth look at selected highlights as well as a comprehensive catalogue of every diorama in the museum’s collection, divided into sections for mammals and birds.
