Robert FitzRoy is given the captaincy of HMS Beagle, surveying the wilds of Tierra del Fuego. He is aged twenty three, and suffers from hereditary manic depression. He takes on a passenger, a young trainee cleric and amateur geologist named Charles Darwin to follow his two ambitions one being that black and white men are equal, and that he can prove the truth of the Book of Genesis.

"In 1831, Fitzroy and Darwin?the captain and the naturalist?board the Beagle and set sail for Tierra del Fuego and points beyond. As they travel around the world, exploring the coasts of Patagonia and surveying the Gal?pagos Islands, the two men forge a life-long bond while simultaneously debating morality, nationality, biology, fate, and religion. And as Darwin formulates his theory of evolution, in the process he destroys everything Captain Fitzroy, the Christian Tory aristocrat, stands for" -- from the publisher

Penguins stopped play by Harry Thompson ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It seemed a simple enough idea at the outset: to assemble a team of eleven men to play cricket on each of the seven continents of the globe. Except...that's not a simple idea at all. And when you throw in incompetent airline officials, cunning Bajan drug dealers, overzealous American anti-terrorist police, idiotic Welshmen dressed as Santa Claus and whole armies of pitch-invading penguins, you quickly arrive at a lot more than you bargained for. Harry Thompson's hilarious book tells the story of one of those great madcap enterprises that only an Englishman could have dreamed up, and only a bunch of Englishmen could possibly have wished to carry out
