Darwin’s Rival: Alfred Russel Wallace and the Search for Evolution

Follow Victorian naturalist and explorer Alfred Russel Wallace on his epic journeys around the globe and find out how he discovered the theory of evolution by natural selection, independently of Charles Darwin. 'Darwin's Rival' traces Wallace’s life from his childhood in the Welsh countryside to becoming one of the world’s most famous scientists, via dense tropical jungles and perilous sea journeys. With evocative illustrations by Harry Tennant, this book, for children and adults alike, introduces the man so often eclipsed by his contemporary and friend Charles Darwin.
