Happy publication day to Darwin’s Voyage of Discovery!

A wonderful celebration of history’s most remarkable journey, Jake Williams‘ new book Darwin’s Voyage of Discovery is published today to celebrate 160 years of Charles Darwin’s ground-breaking text on evolution: On The Origin of Species.

From England to Cape Verde, Brazil to the Galapagos, Tahiti to Australia; discover the wildlife of Charles Darwin – giant sloths, platypus, tarantulas, fireflies and more.
