Darwin's Rival: Alfred Russel Wallace and the Search for Evolution

Darwin's Rival: Alfred Russel Wallace and the Search for Evolution

by Christiane Dorion and Harry Tennant

Hardback Age range: 10 to 14 years old Publication Date: 17/03/2020

  $42.75
A beautifully illustrated volume follows a lesser-known Victorian naturalist and explorer on his global journeys -- and reveals how he developed his own theory of evolution.

Everyone knows Charles Darwin, the famous naturalist who proposed a theory of evolution. But not everyone knows the story of Alfred Russel Wallace, Darwin's friend and rival who simultaneously discovered the process of natural selection. This sumptuously illustrated book tells Wallace's story, from his humble beginnings to his adventures in the Amazon rain forest and Malay Archipelago, and demonstrates the great contribution he made to one of the most important scientific discoveries of all time.

Christiane Dorion

Christiane Dorion's passion for writing children's books stems from the thousands of questions she asked as a child, many of which remained unanswered: How big is the universe? When did life begin? Originally from Canada, Christiane moved to the UK to carry out a PhD in environmental education, before working for WWF-UK for eight years.

In 2002, Christiane left to become an educational consultant and writer, and her award-winning books are intended to inspire children to explore the complex systems of the world we live in and help protect it. Christiane lives in Surrey.
