Who is Charles Darwin?
BY: Paige Cruse
Charles Darwin himself
When he was young he stole fruit from the orchard trees on the side of his parents' house, making up wild stories, and striving to be the center of attention in the family.
He was a swift runner and an excellent rock thrower.
Charles Darwin was part of the emerging middle class.
