When Charles Darwin set sail on HMS Beagle, he didn't yet know that he'd make discoveries that would change the world. Dramatizing this remarkable voyage for readers 9 to 12, Jake Williams follows the ship from England to Cape Verde, Brazil to the Galapagos, Tahiti to Australia. Along with fascinating information on the purposes of the expedition, this book also looks at the crew and the equipment that made it possible. Williams includes cross-sections of the famed ship, while offering lovely illustrations of the wildlife that Darwin encounters as he does scientific research: giant sloths, platypus, tarantulas, fireflies, and more.
