Darwin, His Daughter, and Human Evolution

No book club meeting for April. Book choice for May is Darwin, His Daughter, and Human Evolution by Randal Keynes. It has also been republished as Creation: The True Story of Charles Darwin.

In a chest of drawers bequeathed by his grandmother, author Randal Keynes discovered the writing case of Charles Darwin's beloved daughter Annie, who died at the age of ten. He also found the notes Darwin kept throughout Annie's illness, the eulogy he delivered at her funeral-and provocative new insights into Darwin's views on nature, evolution, and the human condition.
