Why do i say Mr. Darwin? Because the writer, Richard Milner is known by that moniker among his friends. He does a one man show, filled with witty songs, wherein he plays that very man, Charles Darwin. The breath of his knowledge on such subjects as Evolution and its history is in evidence in his fantastic encyclopedic book, Darwin's Universe. This book, Charles Knight, The Man who saw through time, is filled with that man's wonderful paintings depicting all manner of prehistoric beasts, many of which can be found in the Museum of
Natural History in New York. Mr Milner was chosen among other candidates to write this book by Charles Knight's grand daughter. He is wonderful writer and this book is gorgeous besides, filled with Charles Knight's paintings as his story is brought to life by Mr. Milner's deft hand and warm style.
