"For readers, Charles Darwin, born in 1809, apparently never gets old... Currently we get about 160 a year - a Darwin tome every 2.3 days. Even with a book population so large, most years bring notable additions, and so it is in 2017... the geologist Matthew J. James's Collecting Evolution recounts a 1905-6 Galapagos visit in which the legendary field naturalist Rollo Beck, wielding shotgun, burlap bags and camera, made observations that provided crucial support for Darwin's work in those islands." -- New York Times Book Review, 18 September 2017
"James writes well and delivers a stimulating account of evolutionary thought through the years" -- Publishers Weekly
"An excellent read on the last collection voyage to Galapagos" -- Galapagos Matters
