Description
 
For 5 years from the time he boarded the “Beagle” in 1831, as the ship sailed from the Atlantic to the Pacific along the coast of S. America, Darwin closely observed the relationship between the wild creatures he stalked and the unfamiliar landscapes where they lived. At the end of these adventures, Darwin emerged a philosophical naturalist who could draw scientific truths from the simple stories contained in the creatures he encountered. Author Haupt puts us inside the young Darwin’s shoes -- and brings us nose-to-nose with dung beetles, ostriches, hummingbirds, condors, turtles, and all forms of native wildlife. By focusing mostly on the birds Darwin observed, Haupt illuminates the process of discovery that shaped Darwin’s vision. Illustrations.
