About the Book
Galapagos—the very name evokes an exotic and untamed landscape teeming with wildlife. For many it is a lifelong dream to journey to "Las Encantadas"—the Enchanted Islands—as the Spanish who first visited called them. Because of their isolation, they are host to over 30 endemic bird species and many unique and endemic species of animals, plants, and insects. Most of the wildlife, having no natural predators, have no fear of humans. This book presents a small window into the fauna, flora, and landscape of this fascinating tropical archipelago.
