Above all else, Charles Darwin was an independent thinker whose work still influences views of the natural world. The Tree of Life begins with Darwin’s childhood and traces the arc of his life from his university studies to his early professional pursuits. The book continues through the voyage of the Beagle to the Galapagos Islands, and concludes with Darwin’s return home for a quiet life devoted to science and family. Sís’s pictures – drawn in fine pen and ink, along with lush watercolors – create a visual treasure trove that makes Darwin’s journey come alive.
