Description
Information
Charles Darwin's Adventures and Discoveries on the "Beagle" 1832 - 1836.

A narrative account of Darwin's historic four-year voyage on the Beagle to South America, Australia and the Pacific in the 1830s that combines the adventure and excitement of Alan Moorehead's famous (and now out of print) account with an expert assessment of the scientific discoveries of that journey. The author is Charles Darwin's great-grandson.

No biography of Darwin has yet done justice to what the scientific research actually was that occupied Darwin during the voyage. Keynes shows exactly how Darwin's geological researches and his observations on natural history sowed the seeds of his revolutionary theory of evolution, and led to the writing of his great works 'On The Origin Of Species' and 'The Descent Of Man'.
