Book review: ‘Charles Darwin's Beagle Diary’ by R.D. Keynes (ed.)

An annotated version of the journal Darwin kept aboard HMS Beagle.

Charles Darwin's Beagle Diary

Charles Darwin’s Beagle diary is a Boys’ Own adventure story: storms, sea-sickness, floggings, jungle adventures, volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, savages, in-land treks, river journeys, gauchos, battles, the return of alien abductees—they're all in there.

Wonderful.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
