    Charles Darwin was just 22 when he went on his first voyage around the world in 1831. Darwin's father at first refused to allow his young son to go on the voyage. Fortunately, his father relented, and Darwin's journal is now considered by many to be the greatest scientific travel narrative ever written.

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."
