From the Publisher
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.

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.
