What Mr Darwin Saw (Hardback)

Illustrated by Manning, Mick
Illustrated by Granstrom, Brita

In 1831, at only 22 years old, Darwin is offered the position of Naturalist on HMS Beagle's world voyage. His uncle, Josiah Wedgwood, helps him persuade his father. In those days such a voyage was as unthinkable as a modern day voyage into outer space. Darwin is set to become a p...arson but returns after 5 years an inspired genius. This book follows the journey of HMS Beagle, with topics such as life on-board the ship for Darwin, the captain, crew and the expedition's artist. It will follow Darwin as he visits various countries culminating in Galapagos. It explains in simple terms Darwin's inspired theory of evolution, while also showing something of the adventures and escapades he had during the voyage.
