Darwin Slept Here: Discovery, Adventure, and Swimming Iguanas in Charles Darwin's South America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One snowy day in Ushuaia, Argentina, the self-proclaimed "southernmost city in the world," writer Eric Simons picked up a copy of Charles Darwin's Voyage of the Beagle. He had just hiked the mountains overlooking Beagle Channel, and found himself engrossed in Darwin's account.

Like Simons, Darwin was in his mid-twenties when he traveled to South America. Simons followed Darwin further into the continent-to stand where Darwin had, and to explore the histories, legends and people that had fascinated the great scientist two centuries before. He trekked to as many of the locations Darwin wrote about as he could find, to see if he could view these places through Darwin's eyes, and to learn what South Americans know about Darwin.

Innovative and amusing, Darwin Slept Here offers a new look at a familiar subject, by a fresh, compelling writer to watch.

Synopsis:

Published to coincide with the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of "The Origin of Species, Darwin Slept Here" offers a fresh-eyed and enchanting journey to South America that follows the famous biologist's footsteps. B&w photos throughout.
