Media reviews
From the reviews: '... a record of his immediate feelings, the sea-sickness, the triumphs of his palaeontological finds, close shaves with General Rosas and military activity in Patagonia, drinking mate and smoking cigarilloes with the Gaucho, the stars glittering over the Andes ... vivid and expressive...'. Janet Browne 'Besides being an intriguing read, this book is a source of information that is invaluable to any student whose interest strays into the Darwin saga.' Open History 'What emerges more strongly are the vicissitudes of long distance travel in the 1830s ... and a flavour of Darwin's own personality ... the book is highly recommended.' Paul Ashtron, Biologist
