The Ghost In The Garden


Jude Piesse

The Mount in Shrewsbury was the site of some of Darwin’s earliest experiment­s. It was where, under the tutelage of his green-fingered mother and sisters, and the house’s gardeners, he first examined the reproducti­ve life of flowers, collected birds’ eggs and began to note down the ideas that would lead to his ground-breaking theory of evolution. In this book, Jude Piesse uncovers the lost histories that inspired Darwin and how his legacy lives on.
