Answer :

By the time Richard Ebright was in the second grade, he had collected all twenty-five

species of butterflies found around his hometown. According to him, this would probably

have been the end to his butterfly collecting. However, a book made him think

otherwise. The book titled 'The Travels of Monarch X' became a turning point in his life.

The book was about how monarch butterflies migrated to Central America. This opened

up the world of science to the eager young butterfly collector. At the end of the book,

readers were invited to help study butterfly migrations. He actively participated in

tagging butterflies to help in the research being conducted by Dr Frederick A. Urquhart.

He went on to raise an entire flock of butterflies in the basement of his home. Thus, it

can be said that the book had managed to keep his enthusiasm alive by making him

aware of the never-ending possibilities in the world of science.
