I read this after a trip and throughly enjoyed it. What is so incredible is the conditions the Wittmers lived in when they first went to Floreana in the 1930s - some might say they were mad to do it. Stylistically, the book is not perfect - it's clearly not written by an accomplished author, but that doesn't really matter given the fascinating subject. You'll love it if you are in the least bit interested in the Galapaogos islands.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Woman With Amazing Grit 28 Jun. 2014
By johanna
Format:Paperback
We called her "Ma" Wittmer when I was growing up in Galapagos. When we visited the island of Floreanna she always greeted us with flour on her apron and a twinkle in her eye. Although the book is "ghosted" there are touching moments but mostly it shows the grit and pioneer spirit of a long lost time on a remote island few would ever be inspired to call home. With the new release of the film The Galapagos Affair....I am glad that my old friend Ma Wittmer has a voice through this little book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A god read - recommended 15 May 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
Subject unusual and most interesting. I enjoy non-fiction mainly and biographies and Floreana just fitted the bill. The language was good and I was kept engrossed to the end.
