Buckets from an English Sea

1832 and the Making of Charles Darwin

Louis B. Rosenblatt

  • Focuses on a lesser-studied part of Darwin's life and career: the events in Tierra del Fuego which set Darwin on the trail of discovery
  • Most accounts focus on Darwin's findings in the Galapagos as if he "stumbled upon" his findings by chance; this book explores why Darwin sought it out
  • While most books examine the span of Darwin's career, this book focuses primarily on a single year: 1832
