Darwin's Moon: A Biography of of Alfred Russell Wallace
For much of the twentieth century not much was written about Wallace outside scholarly circles. This was probably the result of what actually happened in the relationship between him and the better known Darwin, i.e. that Wallace solved the problem of the diversity of living things independently of Darwin and with more supportive facts, but chose to allow Darwin to be the sun, to his more modest moon. This popular biography seeks to set the record straight at a time when Wallace's legacy was still in the shade. 261 pages with a bibliography, map and index.
