Description

Ever since the days of Darwin the Galapagos Islands have captured the imagination of the world. This book captures the ethereal ? even haunting quality of these islands, in words and pictures like none ever before. As well as visiting the coastlines, with their cold seas and burning rocks, sea-lions and marine iguanas, the reader is taken into active volcanic calderas, where life hangs in the balance each time the volcano remakes itself, follows the season of the giant tortoise, dives into the twilight world of sperm whales and hammerhead sharks, and treads on still-steaming volcanic ground so new it has never felt a human footfall. Ten photo-essays showcase the special birds and animals that make Galapagos their home. The text flows from an intimate knowledge of, and deep love for, the Galapagos, and the quality of the imagery reflects the author?s place as one of the world?s top twenty wildlife photographers. Galapagos: Islands Born of Fire captures the vibrant essence of the islands.
