Recommends it for: anybody interested in history or biology.
A fascinating account of the life and times of Charles Darwin. The book details his family, the great journey he made on board of Beagle, the publication of his theory of evolution through natural selection and the uproar it caused. Wonderful stuff with absolutely wonderful black and white photographs and drawings.

Excellent biography and concise study of the theory of evolution and how it impacted on the Victorian world, well worth reading if you can find a copy.
