Charles Darwin was a scientist by profession but an explorer at heart. At age 22, Darwin embarked on his first voyage aboard a ship called theBeagle. This picture book follows Charles as he explores South America for the first time, collecting insects, galloping with gauchos, digging up dinosaur bones, eating armadillo for breakfast, and making early discoveries related to evolution and natural selection. He encounters a volcano, a glacier, and an earthquake and survives a harrowing five-year journey before returning home to England, determined to devote his life to the natural world.

Complete with mesmerizing map work charting his voyage, this biography communicates Darwin's ideas and discoveries with gentle illustrations that capture his admiration for the world around him.
