Charles Darwin: an Australian selection.
Canberra: National Museum of Australia, 2008.
Octavo, paperback, 132 pp. colour illustrations.
Charles Darwin found much in Australia to challenge and inform his thinking. This book explores the impact that Darwin's short visit to Australia in 1836 had on the man himself and on the emerging nation. Now, more than 170 years later, Darwin continues to influence Australian attitudes to life and living.
