Biography of scientist and explorer Wallace, who in 1858 claimed to have worked out the theory of natural selection, only to be overlooked in favour of Darwin's On the Origin of Species. This account covers Wallace's adventures to the Spice Islands, the Amazon, and the East Indies. Raby reveals Wallace as being a courageous and unconventional explorer, plunging into a variety of controversies, but always seeming to be neglected in the history of science and ideas. Here, in a stirring account, he is back on centre stage.
