Charles Darwin found much in Australia to challenge and inform his thinking. This book explores the impact that Darwins 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 infl uence Australian attitudes to life and living.
