Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the "Inside... series, history and discovery, architecture and engineering combine to bring the past to life in a unique and fascinating way. Filled with full-color, cut-away illustrations, picture strips, photographs and informative text, each volume takes us "inside," either a structure or a city, a natural phenomenon or an idea. This "inside look" provides a novel way of learning about history and culture. Climb aboard the "Beagle and embark upon a fascinating ship and an amazing journey of discovery with the young naturalist, Charles Darwin, who has yet to become the "father of evolutionary biology." In these pages, you will meet Darwin at the age of 22. You also will encounter his ship, the "Beagle, through detailed cut-away illustrations, showing compartments, living quarters, service areas, rigging and equipment. Moreover, you will learn about a sailor's day aboard the "Beagle, from what he ate to the navigation equipment he used to how he worked the rigging. And you will travel upriver with Darwin to a tropical rainforest, where you will encounter Indians and Condors. Then, as Darwin explores Cape Horn and Terria Del Fuego, you will learn about the lives of the Indians, as well as about famines, cannibals and matricide. You also will travel to the Pampas and the Andes, to Santiago and the Galapagos Islands, where you will learn about volcanoes, craters, and the natural history of reptiles, great tortoises, fish, insects and birds. From there you will travel to New Zealand, Australia, the Cape of Good Hope, Mauritius, St. Helena, and finally home with Darwin to England. In addition to its informative text and numerous detailed spreads, Inside the "Beagle with Charles Darwinalso covers Darwin's major findings during the voyage, his conclusions, and the period after the voyage. A section of voyage facts, a glossary and an index also are included, making this book an excellent resource as well as a good read.

Synopsis:

Combining exploration, sea faring adventure, and natural history, this splendidly illustrated book tells Darwin's exciting story.
