Eric Simons, author of DARWIN SLEPT HERE, on NPR's All Things Considered

NPR's resident scientist Robert Krulwich speaks with Eric Simons, author of Darwin Slept Here: Discovery, Adventure, and Swimming Iguanas in Charles Darwin's South America, on "All Things Considered."

2009 is a double-anniversary year for Darwin: the 200th anniversary of his birth in February, and the 150th anniversary of publication of The Origin of Species. Following in Darwin's footsteps, author Eric Simon's new book is an innovative and thrilling new look at Darwin as a young naturalist in South America.
