Summary
BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY: SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY & ENGINEERING. When "On the Origin of Species" came out in 1859, it changed the understanding of life and was the foundation of evolutionary biology. All the material that he received for this book was from the famous expeditions he took on the "Beagle" during the 1830s. This is the story of that voyage. "A Naturalist's Voyage Round the World" follows Charles Darwin over his almost five-year journey around the world, in which he studied animals, plants, geology, and much more. From the tip of South America and the Galapagos Islands to Australia and Tahiti, Darwin set out to study geology, but ended up finding the information that would lead to his theory of evolution by natural selection. With the original images from Darwin's journal, "A Naturalist's Voyage Round the World" is an incredible look into the past at one of the most important documentations of a sea voyage ever
