From the Publisher

Galapagos
I first went to the Galapagos Islands in 1974, journeying there by ship which ran aground when the captain was otherwise engaged. I returned as a tour leader, having the immense good fortune to visit this archipelago a total of nine times. Since then I've wanted to publish the guidebook which I wish I'd been able to give my passengers: something to aid in identifying the wildlife as well as being a reminder of one of the world's most wonderful holiday experiences. David Horwell and Pete Oxford have allowed me to fulfill this ambition with their combination of superb photography and informative text (both are naturalist guides in the Galapagos). --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Took this book with us on our recent trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos. Really useful, packed with loads of background natural history info & great pictures, and helped us get far more out of our trip than we would have otherwise. Detailed information about all the landing sites. The book came home very battered as every passenger on the boat used it daily!

Format: Paperback
This relatively small book on the wildlife of the Galapagos Islands is packed with information and pictures. The author has gone to a great deal of trouble to condense a vast amount of data into a handbook for the traveller, without sacrificing essential information, clarity or accuracy. Not only does it cover the wildlife that the visitor is most likely to encounter, it also gives a succinct history of the islands. Working in the Galapagos Travel Industry, and having considered many similar books for pre-trip briefing and ready reference while in the islands, this is the book I would recommend.

I bought this to accompany me on a Galapagos cruise, my mother-in-law bought the Collins Galapagos Wildlife guide. On the cruise although mine was perfectly ok, we both without fail turned to hers in preference. I think that says it all.

Format: Paperback
Definitely the most authoritative and up-to-date guide to the Galapagos Islands, written by licensed Galapagos naturalist guides. Descriptions of the wildlife have just the right amount of interesting and factual information and there is a very useful section on visitor sites and island landings as well as one on conservation. And - a major plus - a convenient size to pack. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A useful guide for visitors to the islands and the armchair tourist
Following an introduction which deals with geology,climate and history the book has 10 sections covering habitats,plants, invertebrates,reptiles,birds,mammals,the seashore,underwater,landing sites and conservation.Each part is well written and easily read.
The maps and most pictures are good but too many illustrations are too small and badly exposed.The glossary is adequate,the further reading and index sections but printed in such small type make them difficult to read without a magnifying glass.

Format: Paperback
Excellent book. It was the reference on the cruise boat and many of the pictures and commentaries relate to sites that would be visited on a Galapagos Cruise. It is also a fraction of the price you will pay in the islands.
