Follow Victorian naturalist and explorer Alfred Russel Wallace on his intrepid adventures across the globe and find out how he developed his own theory of evolution in this beautiful illustrated gift hardback.

In 1858, Alfred Russel Wallace's travels in the Amazon Basin and Malay Archipelago led him to discover natural selection independently of Charles Darwin. Darwin's Rival charts Wallace's rise to prominence among the scientific community, via dense tropical jungles and perilous journeys - and shines a light on one of the most important contributors to the theory of evolution. With evocative illustrations by Harry Tennant, this stunning book will appeal to children and adults alike, and is the perfect introduction to the man so often eclipsed by his contemporary and friend Charles Darwin.
