The Voyage of the Beagle

The riveting firsthand account of the historic voyage that led to the theory of evolution   When the HMS Beagle set sail in 1831, the science of biology was not far removed from the Dark Ages. When the ship returned to England nearly five years later, Charles Darwin had the makings of a theory that would revolutionize our understanding of the natural world.   From volcanoes in the Galapagos to the coral reefs of Australia, The Voyage of the Beagle documents the young naturalist's encounters with some of the earth's most stunning features. Darwin's observations of the people, places, and events he experienced make for compelling reading and offer a fascinating window into the intellectual development of his ideas about natural selection.   A brilliant travelogue and a revealing glimpse into the Victorian mindset, The Voyage of the Beagle is an indispensable companion volume to On the Origin of Species.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
