About the Book
Going to the Galapagos Islands? This is an annotated photo album of the geology, plants, birds and other animals of the Galapagos Islands. However, unlike most photo albums, each photo comes with a scientific description in laymen's terms. This is not just a beautiful coffee table book, but also one that can be used for educational purposes. Written by two avid naturalists, Lee and Wen.
