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.
