One of the most delightful, witty, and beautifully written of all natural histories, The Voyage of the Beagle recounts the young Darwin’s 1831 to 1836 trip to South America, the Galápagos Islands, Australia, and back again to England, a journey that transformed his understanding of biology and fed the development of his ideas about evolution. Fossils spring to life on the page as Darwin describes his adventures, which include encounters with “savages” in Tierra del Fuego, an accidental meal of a rare bird in Patagonia (which was then named in Darwin’s honor), and wobbly attempts to ride Galápagos tortoises.
