The Origin of Species may be the most famous book in science but its stature tends to obscure much of Charles Darwin's other works. His visit to the Galapagos lasted just five weeks and on his return he never left Britain again. Darwin spent forty years working on the plants, animals and people of his native land and wrote over six million words on topics ranging from dogs, insect-eating plants, orchids, earthworms, apes and human emotion. In this beautifully written, witty and illuminating book, Steve Jones explores the domestic Darwin and his homeland.
