進化論のチャールズ・ダーウィン氏の伝記です。

And like all good scientists, Charles was curious --- so curious he was never afraid to ask hard questions --- and he looked for answer based on what he saw.
P3
好奇心が大事!

Circumnavigation (going around the world on a ship) was fairly common by Charles’s day. Three hundred years had passed since Ferdinand Magellan first circled the globe in 1522.
P21
Fairly common ってまずまず一般的ってことですかね。

The Beagle voyage was supposed to last two years. Instead, it lasted five. During those years, Charles was at sea for only eighteen months. The rest of the time, he explored or hunted. When Charles was on land, the Beagle would usually be sailing nearby, charting the ocean waters.
P28
2年の予定が5年に。海には18か月しかおらず、陸で過ごしていたんですね。

Charles was leading a double life. To the outside world, he was a rising star in science. He was famous for his voyage on the Beagle and his collections. He was invited to join important groups of scientists.
But secretly, Charles was trying to solve a scientific puzzle. He didn’t tell anyone what he was working on.
P62
慎重な人ですよね。

The Darwins had ten children. Three died in childhood, including Anne, their oldest daughter, who died in 1851 when she was ten. Annie had been her father’s favorite. Her death led Charles to drift away from religion.
P74
子沢山!

After 1869, Wallace changed his mind about human evolution. Unlike Charles Darwin, Wallace decided human beings hadn’t evolved like other animals.
P84
Codiscoverer of natural selection の Wallace氏は自説を変えたのかぁ。

By this time, Charles was quite famous. People wrote him letters all the time. More than fourteen thousand letters to or from Charles Darwin still exist.
P90
14000もの手紙が。

He died on April 19, 1882, at age seventy-three, and was buried in Westminster Abbey.
P93
またロンドンに行くことがあったら、お参りしてみたいです。

At the end of The origin of Species, his love of the natural world shines through. Charles asks his readers to think how wonderful it is just to walk along a stream, listening to birds and watching insects.
P98

Darwin’s grandfather publishes one of the first theories on evolution. 1794
P101

In the long history of humankind, those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.
Charles Darwin (English naturalist and evolutionist. 1809 – 82)
人類の長い歴史の中では、協力ならびに臨機応変な対応を最も効果的に行うことを学んだ者が勝利してきた。
