The Devolution of the Species

The Devolution of the Species

by

The uninquisitive Syms Covington, Darwin’s servant, recalls the HMS Beagle’s historical second voyage concentrating on all the wrong details. As FitzRoy sails the Beagle to Bahia, he starts to buckle under the pressure of being captain when some of his crew succumb to tropical disease and the memory of a departed colleague haunts him. Back on land, Darwin and Syms are given a guided tour of Rio and its surrounds by yet another priest with questionable morals, while Derbishire runs from the long arm of the admiralty‚Äôs accounts department. The Devolution of the Species was created by Cameron Gray, Abraham de Cugnac and George Corrigan.
