Description
Born in the spring of 1809, Charles Robert Darwin seemed to be an ordinary child in upper-middle-class England, as seen in this charmingly illustrated biography for readers 8 and up. Though Darwin was educated at Cambridge University with the idea of becoming a priest, his life took a different direction when he was invited to join a five-year survey mission to South America and several Pacific islands aboard HMS Beagle, during which he analyzed the zoological and botanical specimens that would lead him to a new understanding of our biological origins. Diane Cook depicts episodes in Darwin's life and frames his work in the context of scientific and popular belief.
