Description: In the 1830s a young Yamana Indian boy was abducted from the wilderness of Tierra del Fuego and shipped to London. Renamed Jemmy Button, he was "educated" and "cultured" and paraded about to British aristocracy, even meeting King William IV and Queen Adelaide. After a year in England he sailed back to his home on The Beagle, accompanied by Charles Darwin. This voyage together greatly influenced Darwin's writing of The Origin of the Species. Thirty years later Button was accused of leading a massacre that killed nearly everyone on board a missionary schooner.

Thoroughly researched and remarkably well-written, this fascinating and poignant story is ultimately about the horrors of British colonialism and one appalling outcome of the brutal imperialism of the day.
