"A wild scheme" was one of Dr. Darwin’s objections to his son’s voyage aboard the H.M.S. Beagle. Charles Darwin overthrows his father’s concerns, and embarks on the journey. Sis masterfully recreates his life through a collection of anecdotes, letter excerpts, and exquisite illustrations. Darwin’s legacy proves an inspirational message to pursue one’s passion for understanding. A perfect selection for scientists — and dreamers — of all ages.
