More Description

From one of Australia's most acclaimed writers comes Mr. Darwin's Shooter, a deeply imagined and stunningly well-executed exploration of natural marvels and scientific discovery, ambition, and adventure, and of one of history's most significant crises of faith. As Charles Darwin's manservant, Syms Covington shot and collected hundreds of specimens that would become fundamental to Darwin's theory of evolution. Now middle-aged and near-deaf, Covington awaits the arrival of the first copy of The Origin of Species, and is beset by guilt over having participated in a work that will shake the human worldview to its foundations.
