    I hate every wave of the ocean', the seasick Charles Darwin wrote to his family during his five-year voyage on the H.M.S. Beagle. It was this world-wide journey, however, that launched the scientist's career. "The Voyage of the Beagle" is Darwin's fascinating account of his trip - of his biological and geological observations and collection activities, of his speculations about the causes and theories behind scientific phenomena, of his interactions with various native peoples, of his beautiful descriptions of the lands he ...

Reviews of The Voyage of the Beagle

Hoapili

A scientific breakthrough and adventure story

by Hoapili on Mar 3, 2009

This is Charles Darwin's rewrite of the journal of his voyage round the world in a British exploring vessel, the Beagle. Its scientific significance is that in it he records observations that gave him inklings that species were not eternally fixed but could evolve. It's also a rattling good adventure and travel story. The best book I took to the Galapagos,it made serious fun tracing Darwin's movements, and fun fun teasing my fellow greenies. "The hawks are so tame I pushed one off his perch with the muzzle of my shotgun", "The tortoises of James Island are esteemed especially tasty." led to "Why are you shcked? I was quoting Darwin."
