    "...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 maté and smoking cigarillos with the Gaucho, the stars glittering over the Andes...vivid and expressive..." Janet Browne

    "...beautifully edited...Keynes's edition includes a well-sculpted and informative historical introduction, carefully edited text, watercolor illustrations...and a biographical register of individuals mentioned in the text...this corpus establishes R.D. Keynes, emeritus professor of physiology at Cambridge, as an expert on the Beagle voyage." Journal of the History of Biology

    "An intimate portrait of Darwin the man emerges, characterized by wonder, good humor, and the abiding sense of curiosity..." Northeastern Naturalist
