    "If Mr. Darwin ever does write that book of his, I am sure it will be a great success."

    At just ten years old, James Kincaid is an assistant to the naturalist Charles Darwin on the HMS Beagle. The life of a ship's boy turned explorer is never dull, as James discovers when he helps Darwin collect specimens on the South American continent. From treacherous seas to devastating earthquakes and erupting volcanoes, the Beagle sails on, searching bays, inlets, and islands...

    James diary tells of the exciting journey that led to one of the world's most ground-breaking scientific works. It's a young boy's insight into the thoughts and ideas of one of the world's greatest scientists as well as a gripping tale of adventure.

    An illustrated reference chapter provides further information about Darwin's discoveries and theories and the scientific world of the 1800s.
