In 1831 Darwin embarked on the HMS Beagle for his second expedition surveying the world’s remarkable biological diversity. Not only would the expedition last five years and take the biologist to the farthest reaches of the globe, it would also inspire Darwin’s celebrated theory of evolution by natural selection. The Voyage of the Beagle details and catalogs Darwin’s incredible observations and theories and affords the reader the unique opportunity to witness the natural world unfold through his eyes.
