Author(s): Iain Mccalman
Darwin's Armanda is both a gripping adventure story and a brilliantly enlightening work of history, for the first time portraying the Darwinian revolution as a collective enterprise forged in Australasia. Four remarkable men: Charles Darwin, Joseph Hooker, Thomas Huxley and Alfred Wallace, did what one alone could not - combed the world for evidence of evolution by natural selection, and then fought tirelessly in the social and intellectual battle that followed its famous publication 150 years ago. Together they changed the world. First published 2009.
Iain McCalman's previous books includes The Seven Ordeals of Count Cagliostro, which has been translated into twelve languages.
