Looking for Darwin by Lloyd Spencer Davis

An award-winning zoologist travels in Charles Darwin's footsteps, and in search of the meaning of life.In one of the most inhospitable places on Earth, zoologist Lloyd Spencer Davis comes face to face with an enraged leopard seal. Towering ice cliffs, a ferocious creature of the deep, and the extreme Antarctic environment all turn Davis's world view on its head. 'What the hell am I doing here?' This question sets Davis on a quest for insight and meaning in a world that still pitches theories of evolution against belief in a Creator; the science of natural selection against a faith that asserts our world was crafted by Intelligent Design. With a self-deprecating grin packed along with his cabin baggage - even when his passport isn't - Davis decides to follow the travels of the eminent nineteenth-century naturalist, Charles Darwin: the man who did more to change our understanding of this planet than any other biologist. Looking for Darwin gives us a personal and intimate insight into Darwin and what drove the man. It is also an attempt to resolve that initially panicked - and then far-reaching - question, that first hit Davis on the big ice. With a wealth of research and vivid imagery - along with a disarming honesty -Lloyd Spencer Davis takes the reader on an unforgettable world tour.
