It is the year 1852, and the origin of species remains a mystery. In a primitive hut in the remote Amazonian jungle, Alfred Wallace, a brilliant young collector of scientific specimens, lies wasted by tropical illness. He does not expect to survive. Healed by a village shaman, Wallace continues his pioneering fieldwork in the Malay archipelago, crystallising his ideas about evolutionary theory, which were to be independently formulated by Charles Darwin. Why wasn't Wallace given the credit for his momentous discoveries? And how did he end up in conflict with London's scientific establishment, including Charles Darwin himself?
