Product Description


From the reviews: '… a record of his immediate feelings, the sea-sickness, the triumphs of his palaeontological finds, close shaves with General Rosas and military activity in Patagonia, drinking maté and smoking cigarilloes with the Gaucho, the stars glittering over the Andes … vivid and expressive…' Janet Browne

'Besides being an intriguing read, this book is a source of information that is invaluable to any student whose interest strays into the Darwin saga.' Open History

'What emerges more strongly are the vicissitudes of long distance travel in the 1830s … and a flavour of Darwin's own personality … the book is highly recommended.' Paul Ashtron, Biologist

Book Description

A fascinating record of one of the most famous journeys ever made, providing an accurate historical document as well as an evocative travelogue that conveys Charles Darwin's personal account of the voyage with freshness and immediacy.

By A customer VINE VOICE on 5 Mar. 2008
Format: Paperback
This is a very interesting story of a voyage that changed the perception of the world.
As a young naturalist Darwin went on board the Beagle to map and make observations of South America. One can only imagine how exciting it must have been for him to be around so much wildlife and new species , his senses must have been on overdrive all the time.

The book is a transcript from his diary with some illustrations ,more maps would have been welcome in this edition. A basic knowledge of Biology and geography is needed to fully appreciate this book.

Very good read.
