Synopsis

Each book in the "Great Journeys" series tells the story of a famous journey of exploration. Although it is written in the form of a narrative, it also describes the vessel used, the route taken, the problems and hazards encountered and the strange and wonderful finds made on the trip. In 1831 Charles Darwin set sail in HMS Beagle bound for South America. For the next five years, he explored strange and fascinating lands including Tahiti, New Zealand, Australia and others, making a study of the peoples, animals and plants that he discovered. This book gives an account of his great adventure, which was to culminate in his book "On the Origin of Species" which changed the world's perception of nature and evolution. Kate Hyndley is also the author of "Family Life" in Wayland's "Let's Discuss" series.
