"There have been many books produced about Galápagos. This one, however, is particularly delightful, with an intelligent text and stunning photographs. I've enjoyed watching Walter Perez passionately pursue his love of photography during the past decade and this book is proof positive of his dedication."--Sven-Olof Lindblad, president and CEO of Lindblad Expeditions
"Capturing Galápagos wildlife in action--up close and in vivid color--this book will make you want to go to the islands even if you have been before."--Peter Grant and Rosemary Grant, authors of 40 Years of Evolution: Darwin's Finches on Daphne Major Island
"With its amazing and entertaining photographs and precise text, this book brings readers close up to the wonders of the living creatures that evolve in the Galápagos. Well done!"--Arturo Izurieta, executive director of the Charles Darwin Foundation for the Galápagos Islands
"Every office with a waiting room should have this book on its coffee table, and any living room where guests might have a few moments before or during a party to browse the décor."--Pennsylvania Literary Journal
