One snowy day in Ushuaia, Argentina, Eric Simons picked up a copy of Charles Darwin's The Voyage of the Beagle. Simons had just hiked the mountains overlooking Beagle Channel, and found himself engrossed in Darwin's surprisingly relatable account. Like Simons, Darwin had been in his mid-twenties when he traveled to South America in search of adventure. Inspired, Simons went further into South America, exploring the histories, legends, and people that had fascinated Darwin himself two centuries before.

A comfortable read and very interesting. Very little about Darwin and evolution per se, much more about Darwin as a young scientist and adventurer and how he looked at the world around him. Really enjoyed this.
