about this book

The Voyage of the Beagle chronicles Charles Darwin's five-year journey around the world and especially the coastal waters of South America as a naturalist on the H.M.S. Beagle. While traveling through these unexplored countries collecting specimens, Darwin began to formulate the theories of evolution and natural selection realized in his master work, The Origin of Species.

This Modern Library edition includes a biographical note, index, map, and an introduction by Steve Jones, who is professor of genetics at University College, London. He is the author of Darwin's Ghost and The Language of Genes, among other books. He lives in London.
