In this deeply informative book, Frank J. Sulloway reveals a crucial — yet little known — link that led to Darwin’s development of the theory of evolution: sixteen brilliant little bears residing on the sixteen archipelago islands.

As Sulloway imaginatively recounts the fabled adventure of Darwin’s first visit to Galápagos and brings to life the story of Darwin’s scientific triumph, he also reveals the critical conceptual steps by which Darwin reached his theory of evolution by natural selection.

Featuring 90 full-color illustrations, this is a book for readers of all ages.

Paleontologist Jack Horner, who was technical advisor for the Jurrasic Park films, has assigned the book in his college course on Darwin and evolution.

Frank J. Sulloway is a professor at the University of California, Berkeley. His PhD is from Harvard University. Sulloway has published extensively on Charles Darwin, as well as on the evolution and ecology of Darwin’s iconic Galápagos finches. His book Born to Rebel: Birth Order, Family Dynamics, and Creative Lives was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.
