The Baré Alchemy Story

The Baré Alchemy Story

Jeanne Baré

Jeanne Baré broke all the rules. She was the first woman ever to circumnavigate the globe, but she did it dressed as a man. A Master Botanist, she taught herself to identify plants to treat wounds and diseases. Baré, who when in Brazil, probably discovered the dazzling vine, that they named after their captain, Louis-Antoine de Bougainville, a plant that became their greatest find.

Prince of Nassau-Siegen who travelled with her says of Jeanne Baré:

I want to give her all the credit for her bravery, a far cry from the gentle pastimes afforded her sex. She dared confront the stress, the dangers, and everything that happened that one could realistically expect on such a voyage. Her adventure, should, I think, be included in a history of famous women.
