About the book:

When H.M.S. Beagle sailed out of Plymouth in 1831 on survey, she carried a naturalist named Charles Darwin, who had been fortuitously appointed at the age of twenty-two. Destined for the church, Darwin was happily prepared to champion the Book of Genesis. But everything he encountered on the voyage - from the primitive people of Tierra del Fuego to the famous finches of the Galapagos Islands, from earthquakes and eruptions to fossil seashells gathered at 12,000 feet in the Andes - conspired to wean the young scientist from the simple faith of Beagle's commander, Captain FitzRoy, and force upon him the subversive conclusions of The Origin of the Species.
