About Book

Book Description
A work of astounding scope and originality that provides some of the first evidence of the modern theory of evolution. Wallace, a contemporary of Charles Darwin, spent nearly a decade cataloging the plant and animal species which inhabited the unique geographical area of the Malay Archipelago, and remains to this day one of the most extensive works of natural history ever written.

About the Author
Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913) developed a theory of evolution by natural selection around the same time as Darwin, perhaps before him.

For an excellent account of their rivalry see The Song of the Dodo, by David Quammen.
