The two photographers have fashioned an unashamed celebration of the everyday life in the Galapagos that truly captures its essence and spirit. Every picture will leave readers awestruck and delighted: a sea lion mother with her baby- iguanas swimming in deep blue waters- a brilliantly-colored vermilion flycatcher resting on Spanish moss- a penguin atop Pinnacle Rock, surveying a magnificent landscape below. In addition, theres a spectacular record of the volcanic eruption of Fernandina in February 1995--one of the geological events fundamental to the archipelagos character.These stunning photos, as well as the compelling accompanying text and a map of the islands, will help us better understand the beauty and uniqueness of the Galapagos--and the importance of conserving its sanctity.
