About the Author: Alfred Russel Wallace

Alfred Russel Wallace, OM, FRS was a British naturalist, explorer, geographer, anthropologist and biologist. He is best known for independently proposing a theory of natural selection which prompted Charles Darwin to publish his own theory.

Wallace did extensive fieldwork, first in the Amazon River basin and then in the Malay Archipelago, where he identified the Wallace Line that divides Indonesia

    Let me first get out of the way why I didn't give this 5 stars. The simple fact is that it was horrendously edited. I realize it was a group of volunteers who transcribed the original so we could have it for free on Kindle and I applaud and appreciate that. But surely, someone could have at least read it through and edited it correctly. If it wasn't for the editing it would certainly have 5 stars.

    This is a fascinating book. In every possible way. One might think that it would be a simple travel journal with a focus only on insects and birds, but it is so very much more than that. It opens a window onto the social and scientific climate of the 1850s in a huge way. From the very casual and nonchalant racism and sexism and superiority complex of the white man, to a bit more self-aware discussion of how his own society fails and is flawed in comparison to the peoples he meets during his travels, how missionaries might be better off evangelizing through action than word, how many of the assumptions of what culture is are wrong.

    It is however, also a book about birds and beetles, and butterflies etc. But through the lens of a man who is beyond excited about seeing things that so few Europeans have seen and even fewer have seen through the eyes of a scientist. He discusses the work of his peers, such as Darwin as it relates to his observations, he discusses the reasons for some shortcomings in the work of those who cam before him. And finally he lays out his ideas for the concept of the Wallace Line a hugely important concept in understanding evolution and natural history via geographical/geological concepts.

    Its fascinating and powerful to see how much work was done with nothing but observation while trekking through the jungle for years. No microscopes, no genetic studies, no lab, few doctors or medicine, no engine for his boat at the mercy of the nature he studies.

    It is partially appealing due to the adventure, partially due to the insight, the discovery of new species, and partially the fact that we have a first hand account of growing of a scientific field. Worth the read. I can only suggest people do, see if you can find a version that has pictures to accompany his descriptions and good editing though, it would make it just that much better.
