During their lifetimes, Alfred Russel Wallace and Charles Darwin shared credit for the independent and almost simultaneous discovery of natural selection. Yet few people today know much about Wallace. "The Heretic in Darwin's Court" explores the controversial life and works of this Victorian traveler, scientist and spiritualist.
