Charles Darwin was an independent thinker who continues even now to influence the way we look at the natural world. His endless curiosity and passion for detail resulted in a wealth of notebooks, diaries, correspondence, and published writings that Peter Sís transforms into a visual treasure trove. A multi-layered journey through Darwin's world, The Tree of Life begins with his childhood and traces the arc of his life through university and career. In wondrous pictures executed in fine pen and ink and lush watercolours, Peter Sís has shaped a brilliant introduction to Charles Darwin.
From three time Caldecott Honoree Peter Sís, a stunning look at the life of Charles Darwin - selected as a New York Times Best Illustrated Book.
