Galapagos: Islands Born of Fire


Originally published in 1997, this enduring and much-loved book has been in print since that time in both English and Spanish, selling over 35,000 copies. Much has happened on the Galapagos in the last 10 years, much of it positive, and the islands continue to fascinate and inspire. This 10th anniversary edition adds a chapter on the Isabela Island - the site of the largest successful island restoration project in the world - and updates the latest conservation issues to confront the islands. All the earlier chapters remain, covering cold seas and burning rocks, to active volcanoes to tortoises, iguanas and marine mammals. This book has endured because of the intimate knowledge and love the author has for her subject: she spent 35 years exploring and recording the secrets of the Galapagos and she continues to be involved in its restoration.
