Charles Darwin: Voyaging by Janet Browne

Book Description

Few lives of great men offer so much interest - and so many mysteries - as the life of Charles Darwin, the greatest figure of nineteenth-century science, whose ideas are still inspiring discoveries and controversies more than 100 years after his death. Yet, only with the publication of Voyaging, the first volume of this acclaimed biography, do we have a truly vivid and comprehensive picture of Darwin as a man and a scientist. The second and final volume of Janet Browne's biography of Darwin - The Power of Place - is also available from Pimlico.
