Publisher's Summary

On December 27, 1831, the HMS Beagle took sail. Onboard was a young Charles Darwin. He would set out on an adventure that would lead him to question everything about man's place in the world and how humans came to be.

The Voyage of the Beagle is the journal Darwin kept during his travels and where he would note his observations of the extraordinary and natural wonders he encountered, from volcanoes to the coral reefs of Australia. It would be these natural wonders that would lead to him questioning how the different species of the world came to be and eventually to his radical theories, which would one day turn the world upside down with the eventual publication of On the Origins of Species.

Darwin!

I was a zoology major in college 50 years ago, and found this book to be a delightful listen! I am amazed at how much Darwin knew all those years ago! His descriptions of the land, the animals, and people of each island he explored were so interesting that I found myself at the end of the book before I knew it! I’m pumped now to read more of his books! AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENRY.

Fascinating

It has been fascinating to hear firsthand the very detailed and clear observations of a brilliant naturalist and to see Darwin’s observations which would go on to form the basis of his revolutionary description of the evolution of species by natural selection.
