Rebecca Stott, author of the acclaimed Ghostwalk and The Coral Thief, returns with the story of the first evolutionists, whose work laid the foundations for Darwin’s Origin of Species. With her impressive insight and prose Rebecca Stott reveals these half-forgotten giants, weaving through 2,000 years of fascinating, colourful history. A clever, absorbing read, Darwin’s Ghosts is an amazing vision of a group of dedicated men who risked their scientific and social reputations in the name of greater understanding. Rebecca is a delightful speaker with a wonderful ability to illuminate the forgotten moments of our shared history: join us in the Bookshop as she tells us about her work and the inspirational characters she encountered in her research.
