The Tree of Life

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 Sis transforms into a visual treasure trove. A multi-layered journey through Danivin'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 Sis has shaped a brilliant introduction to Charles Darwin.
