Subject: Jay Hosler - The Sandwalk Adventure

Hello Everyone

Just wanted to share in the celebration of Charles Darwin by  
mentioning a fantastic book about him that, if you are not already  
acquainted with, you might want to check out!

The author is Jay Hosler, a biologist and cartoonist, and the book is  
called 'The Sandwalk Adventure', a graphic-novel-style work that  
explains the history of Darwin's discovery and the concepts of natural  
selection in a most engaging, fun, and original way, via the dialog  
between Darwin as he takes his daily walks, and a curious follicle  
mite who lives in his eyebrow.

It's a wonderful combination of art and science that is a great  
example to show students, of a unique and important communication  
piece, and of course also very useful to help explain natural  
selection to those who still have trouble understanding it.

Cheers to all
Kathryn Chorney
