On November 24, 1859, Charles Darwin publishes On the Origin of Species. Normally I would recommend the book itself on the day it was published, but I have been assured it is a dry read and we know even more now about evolution and how it works. Jonathan Silvertown’s An Orchard Invisible: A Natural History of Seeds, of course, does not take the reader down the path of animal evolution, An Orchard Invisible provides some illumination on the subtitles of evolution even in unassuming things and how that impacts our species profoundly.
