Description
The HMS Beagle has become synonymous with Charles Darwin and his groundbreaking publication On the Origin of Species. But how did young Darwin come to be aboard this vessel? A former curator of the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich and an expert and frequent lecturer on this voyage, James Taylor here weaves together all of the various strands of the story to reveal the circumstances that set the expedition in motion, and portrays the figures who together traveled on the five-year circumnavigation. His thoroughly engaging and abundantly illustrated account includes firsthand commentary, the official narrative of the voyage, and artwork, sketches, and charts by shipboard artists and surveyors.
