Notes
  • “Darwin is the young naturalist’s hero. Miss Cheesman has retold the story of his life and achievements for boys and girls of 12 upwards. It is, we believe, the only recent biography specially written for them. She has devoted much of the book to his early life and difficulties, and to the adventurous period of the voyage of the ‘Beagle’ and the success it brought. Many a young naturalist will be cheered to discover that a man so eminent as Darwin was a very slow developer – and was, in fact, considered a dud at school. Like all Miss Cheesman’s books this is a very lively one. Not only is it a good, human ‘success story’, but it gives the historical setting from which Darwin’s theory emerged.” -- Dust jacket.
