Reviews

"This is a beautifully illustrated and informative introduction to the life of Galapagos. It's just the book to get the overall picture, and to use as a guide if the reader is fortunate enough to visit this amazing archipelago."--Edward O. Wilson, University Research Professor Emeritus, Harvard University, and author of "Creation: An Appeal to Save Life on Earth "

"I'm often asked by people who are traveling to the Galapagos Islands what book they should read before going. I finally have a good answer. John Hess's book is not just beautifully written. It features spectacular photography--informed by the trained eye of a superb evolutionary biologist--and these images bring the magical plants and animals of this unique archipelago to life."-- Jeffrey P. Bonner, President and CEO of the Saint Louis Zoo and author of "Sailing with Noah: Stories from the World of Zoos"
"I found the book to be a delight to read, as it brought back so many memories of a place where I worked hard and long, but haven't visited in over a decade. This book will serve to both stimulate folks to visit those islands and remind them of what a special visit they had. It was fun to read, and the pictures are spectacular!"--John R. Faaborg, author of "Saving Migrant Birds: Developing Strategies for the Future" and "Ornithology: An Ecological Approach"
