About this book

Language: French

A biography of the famous 19th century explorer and naturalist Father Armand David, discoverer of the Giant Panda, Pere David's Deer and over 30 new species of pheasant. This Roman catholic missionary was also a strong believer in Darwin's new theory of evolution, a dangerous path for someone whose own faith was wholly opposed to the theory.
