Summary
The Voyage of the Beagle is the fascinating record of Charles Darwin's five years as a naturalist aboard a naval survey brig between 1831 and 1836. In those years the Beagle circled the globe, traveling along the coast of South America and crossing the Pacific with a brief, yet significant, stop in the Galapagos Islands to observe its intriguing reptiles and birds. The book's publication changed Darwin's life almost as much as the journey itself, writes David Quammen in the introduction to this Adventure Classics edition of The Voyage of the Beagle. The voyage made Darwin an astute scientific observer. The Voyage of the Beagle made him a famous author. Decades later Darwin wrote: "The success of this my first literary child always tickles my vanity more than that of any of my other books." Considering that his other books included The Origin of Species, the book that put forward his theory of "descent with modification" and became one of the most influential books ever published, his partiality toward The Voyage of the Beagle reminds us that although The Origin of Species changed the world, his experiences aboard the Beagle are what changed Darwin's own life in ways that made The Origin possible
