Description

Now a major motion picture

The moving, personal story of Charles Darwin and his revolutionary views on nature, evolution, and the human condition.


As Darwin's theories continue to shape much of our thinking about the roots of human nature, Creation (formerly Darwin, His Daughters, and Human Evolution) reveals the personal experiences from which he drew his most deeply held ideas.

In a chest of drawers bequeathed by his grandmother, author Randal Keynes, a great-great-grandson of Darwin, found the writing case of Charles Darwin's beloved daughter Annie, who died at the age of fifteen. Offering rare insight into the family's private world, Keynes gives us a fuller picture of one of our most original thinkers, as well as a wealth of previously unseen material.
