About this book
A quirky mix of history and popular science which offers a fascinating new angle on the discovery of Darwin's Theory Of Evolution. "Exciting, gripping and addictively readable" "Independent on Sunday"
This is the story of a barnacle found in South America during Darwin's voyage of the Beagle. It tells of how genius sometimes proceeds through indirection - and how one small creature contributed to history's most spectacular scientific breakthrough.
