Book DescriptionThis gentle self-portrait provides a unique insight into the beliefs and principles of the moral man whose theories on evolution shook the foundations of traditional religion and whose legacy courts both controversy and the accolade of being part of scientific orthodoxy in equal measure to this day.Download DescriptionWhen I left the school I was for my age neither high nor low in it; and I believe that I was considered by all my masters and by my father as a very ordinary boy, rather below the common standard in intellect. To my deep mortification my father once said to me, "You care for nothing but shooting, dogs, and rat- catching, and you will be a disgrace to yourself and all your family."
