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.

Grade 5-9-- Darwin's five-year voyage as a naturalist on the Beagle allowed him to observe a wider variety of natural habitats than would have been possible had he studied wildlife only in England. The journey and its side trips are all discussed in two-page chapters . The book ends with a discussion of Darwin's two major works, On the Origin of Species and The Descent of Man, in which he published his theories of evolution and natural selection. The book is illustrated with full-color paintings and photographs as well as a few black-and-white drawings. This is an attractive book that should appeal to readers with a sense of adventure and an interest in science. --Margaret M. Hagel, Norfolk Public Library System, VA
