BEAGLE catches him literally starting out on his life-long voyage of discovery at a time when he was still extremely physically active and just beginning to come to grips with the seriousness of his interest in Natural History.
Later in life he said that the VOYAGE was his personal favorite of all his writings, and one can see why.
While in many ways VOYAGE is describing a vanished world, Darwin's keen eye for detail renders each landscape with such clarity that one feels that one is really along for the trip -and, thank goodness, some of the places he went to are still there for us to go & wonder at.

After reading The Voyage of the Beagle, I came to realize how Darwin was not intent on setting the religious world on its head.
The Beagle spent five years completing a survey of the coasts of South America and making a series of longitude measurements around the world.
This proved to be one of the most important scientific voyages of the 19th century, for it was on this voyage that Darwin made the observations that lead, twenty years later, to his formulating the theory of evolution by means of natural selection.

It is to this violence of the rain that we must attribute the verdure at the bottom of the thickest woods: if the showers were like those of a colder climate, the greater part would be absorbed or evaporated before it reached the ground.
On the coast of Chile, a few leagues north of Concepcion, the Beagle one day passed through great bands of muddy water, exactly like that of a swollen river; and again, a degree south of Valparaiso, when fifty miles from the land, the same appearance was still more extensive.

The voyage had been commissioned by the government to map the coast of South America and was being captained by Robert FitzRoy, a 26-year-old gentleman who had led a ship to South America the year before.
In his eyes, the voyage was nothing but a dangerous and unprofitable adventure that would do hurt Charles's chances for a solid career.
Josiah agreed with Charles that this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; there was certainly no reason to think that the voyage would interfere with his career when he returned.

 THE VOYAGE OF THE BEAGLE
Other losses, although not at first felt, tell heavily after a period: these are the want of room, of seclusion, of rest; the jading feeling of constant hurry; the privation of small luxuries, the loss of domestic society and even of music and the other pleasures of imagination.
But it must be borne in mind, how large a proportion of the time, during a long voyage, is spent on the water, as compared with the days in harbour.
But I have too deeply enjoyed the voyage, not to recommend any naturalist, although he must not expect to be so fortunate in his companions as I have been, to take all chances, and to start, on travels by land if possible, if otherwise, on a long voyage.
